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.

Game 3. I actually win this won! But I think I got real lucky...
Nc3 was in response to NF6, but obviously it got me into trouble after Bg7...
9.Nxg6 Bxc4 10.Nxf8, trading a rook and a pawn for bishop and Knight. Is Black's bishop really that strong on C4?
I agree. I should have castled much sooner, and pushing the f-pawn would have been a good idea.
Thanks for your input!
Just an advice.. Doubled pawns isnt always weak for the opposition.
Yes, I realize that
Ok yeh that makes sense
