I'm still skeptical about this Petrov gambit line (5 ... Nd7 6. Qe2) as to whether Black has enough compensation for the Pawn. The Two Bishops are nice for the middlegame and endgame, but Petrov players by temperament don't seem eager to play unbalanced positions. =)

Note 1(b) doesn't make any sense as the Bishop visits b4 only to immediately retreat 12 ... Bd6 but I didn't let it run long enough either.
