    Game 1:

    In queen pawn games (d4) you want to counter the center with c4 as white or c5 as black. Nc6 on your 2nd move blocks your c-pawn which is not very good.

    12...dxc3 would have won a pawn for you atleast. If he played worse you would go up more.

    For your queen chuck, at every move think, is my queen, king, or an undefended peice on the same diagonal/file as his rook/bishop?

    Game 2:

    Move 15 (d5) made good use of his mistake c5. You forced him to give you a nice square for your bishop.

    After Nd2 you should have tried to manuveur your knight around to a square where it suports d5 incase of an exchange.

    After d6 he was lost.

    Well done
