I don't like 3..a6 at all. 3..c5 is much better.

3.. a6 is kind of weak tbh

 But 3... c5 isn't full equality either

Yeah, White struggles a bit after 3..c5, 4.e3 cd 5.ed a6, in otb games, I know that you also struggle against this line, but that's online blitz. Maybe your otb results are better. Anyway, Prie has done an extensive analysis on this line on chesspublishing forum. Black is supposed to be in good shape there.
