hi ineed to know more about slav defense
If you have chess.com account, I will advise you to read this article:https://www.chess.com/blog/slobodan007/qgd-vs-slav-vs-semi-slav-vs-botvinniks-gambit-system made by me because I play that variants. If not this is a short resume:
Slav is quite better than QGD( for both sides ), but black has many traps that he must avoid in order to stay active and equal. Black's idea of 2...c6 is not to block c8 bishop by moving 2...e6 like in QGD. But that idea can give black some big troubles if he doesn't know traps and tricks that can be used against him like:
There are many, but that's main stuff about traps.
In the article: https://www.chess.com/blog/slobodan007/qgd-vs-slav-vs-semi-slav-vs-botvinniks-gambit-system you can find some my games examples, lines as well or what to do if...

Here is a good course made by my friend IM Tigran Petrosyan
I don't play the Slav defense only d4,d5,c4,e6
I have good results against the slav with 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4. Qc2 / Qb3 recommended by Hilton & Ippolito in "Wojos Weapons Vol 1"
.... because few opponents play the main line used by masters 4.... dxc4
but answer stereotyp like semislav with 4. ...e6
hi i think the best way to practice opening is by seeing games of top players mainly recent games and by playing practice game these are if you cant afford a coach this is what i had experienced
