  Retireborn: Marshall was playing the Colle opening (or something like it) when Colle was still a boy.

Here he is repeating a line he used to defeat Rubinstein the previous year:-

Marshall vs Rubinstein, 1908

This game quickly ends in a draw by repetition, but there is a point of interest; my notes give 9.exd4 Nxc3 10.bxc3 Nxe5 as good for Black, but following up with 11.fxe5 Qxc3+ 12.Qd2 Qxa1 13.Ne2 Bd7 14.0-0 gives White a very nice position with more than enough for the exchange.

Probably Black should meet 9.exd4 with 9...Be7 or 9...Bd6.
