  Jonathan Sarfati: A typically sudden Marshall attack, exploiting White's off-side Q.

The opening is dubious however. Andrew Soltis in his book on Marshall recommended 9 a3!, taking b4 away from Black and thus threatening Qxb7.

  FSR: Wow, classic Marshall. Somehow I'd never seen this game before. Cool how both players managed to play their signature lines: Reti played his beloved 1.Nf3, but the game transposed into the QGD, Marshall variation (usually reached by 1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nf6 3.cxd5 Nxd5 4.Nf3). Jonathan Sarfati is of course correct about the opening: there's a reason that no one rated above 1800 plays the Marshall today.
