Traxler against an 1800

Here is a recent traxler game with and without my Fritz analysis. I should of known an 1800 player takes with the bishop f7 but I could not resist.

    Nice to see that someone else is suffering through the Seven Circles of Damnation. Keep up the good work and keep kicking butt!

    Hey Tak, been enjoying your Wandering Tour Through the Traxler on Chessgames. Let me ask you something, your 6...Nxd5 seems pretty unusual in the Traxler games I've seen so far. (Most common replies to 6.Bd5 are ...d6, Rf8, and Qe8.) Why? Is there some fatal flaw to 6...Nxd5?
    Your thoughts.
