dont get him to teach you openings
you have a space advantage so should not exchange material ie. Q
Thanks for the help! yeh I see how 8...dxe4 would be very strong. 30...Ng3, I didn't see Qf8, and thought it was the only way not to lose the rook.

Thanks for your input!

Yes, I realize that
Ok yeh that makes sense
a single loss at a chess game is better than many wins
