Here: (Black to play)
His 7...a6 is a typical Blitz Blunder (I've even seen the same thinking in OTB games).
Black can see the threat (Bb5+) and quickly thinks 7...a6 stops it.
Of course it does not stop the Queen winning Bb5+ check.
The RHP database:
Has a few games with this line including games where Black played
the risky biscuits move of 5...Qd4 holding onto the pawn. (see below).
"...the elephant gambit which is considered advantageous for white."
Good advice about having a line v The Elephant (though 2...c6 can also swing it into a Caro Kann).
The Elephant at the lowers level tends to score OK because the Black player
usually has an idea (a bit of theory) of what is going on.
Often the White player is playing against it for the very first time.

scored well with this opening
as Black winning 35 games, drawing 7 and losing 13.
This includes an instructive win v a player I rate quite highly, Swiss Toni. Game 8035969
Swiss T. hangs a piece (as we all do) - Black sacs it back (as we should do) to open up the White King.

Black fell under the illusion he could not take the e4 Knight due to Re1.
But 16...Qxe4 17.Re1 Rh1+ mops ups. Black played 16...0-0-0 but stlll won.
A game with ideas for Wolfie.
