Latvian Gambit

apdjz

It has been recommended to try if I am below 1800 since it is uncommon. Maybe question if they don't take e5 what are some of my next moves? 

 

Thanks

In my last game they played pawn to d4, but for bishop c4 I would play pawn take e4

Just a suggestion.  Dont concentrate on openings.  Everyone at your level is out of book by move 4-5.  Keep it simple, and develop actively, castle, only develop pawns that activate your pieces.
