Semi-Slav Reynolds Attack 11.dxe6 fxe6 12.0–0 Qc7 [D48]-TWIC 951

TWIC 951
Playing against the Semi-Slav is like hitting your head into a brick wall. Now it's time for me to upgrade my line(The Meran) which I have not done for quite some time now.

So far I have been using the Reynolds Attack without really knowing what's going on. One idea worth looking into is the e-pawn sacrifice with 14.Ne2!?

Position 1
The position of interest arises after 13...c4. This is a typical position from the Reynolds Attack. White tried the e-pawn gambit 14.Ne2!? after which black replied 14...Bd6, fighting for the dark squares.

White to Play


Position 2
White has the bishop pair while black's minor pieces are actively placed in the center. What do you recommend for white?
