Bad miscalculation.

10...exd5 is the correct continuation.

Zukertort variation? This seems like a Queen's Gambit Accepted D21.

Black usually declines with 3...e6 or 3...c6.

You're right Bear, 9...Nbd7 wasn't imperative at that point. He should have castled immediately after white.

Yes, 1.d4 d5 with 2.Nf3 is simply (D02) Queen's Pawn Game, Zukertort variation, so in that regard, the opening designation is technically correct, however 3.c4 dxc4 is essentially a transposition to (D21) Queen's Gambit Accepted.
