Nimzo and I were PMing on the thread, and I mentioned how the position reminds me of the Ruy Lopez whenever I see it. Our talk made me think about how the Colle tends to mimic kingpawn openings from a different move order, so I thought I would see what I could find. Here's some interesting games, especially after 8-12 moves into the game:
First a French
From a Sicilian (not a perfect match- some important differences, but a reasonable stylistic fit):
Now a Ruy Lopez (The immediate occupation of e5 with a pawn on move one most certainly alters the landscape, and while I did not pick these based on result, Black does win this):
I think this is a very good example of how studying Master games in general, including tournament books and "Best Games" books, can benefit someone. Patterns and piece placement tend to recur in a variety of different openings, and a broad exposure to the game can add to pattern recognition, increase strategic understanding, and make planning easier, regardless of the opening one plays.
