Game 29 was the fourth with Nygren. Full game here.
The next part I wanted to look at was 12...Nce4. Fritz 11 gives me a =+, but I didn't quite pull off the pawn capture like I was thinking. He responded 13. Rc1 followed by my Bg4. Instead of Bg4, I should have captured his knight with 13...Nxc3 14. Rxc3 Rxc3 15. bxc3 h6 16. Bxf6 Bxf6 and I'd still be slightly better ... I could still attempt to capture the c-pawn with Qc7. But instead of playing 13...Nxc3, I played Bg4 and you can see this resulted in the opening of my castled king as well as going down a pawn. From that point on, I struggled to stay in the game.
I felt badly for him. The game was his except for that blunder. He was very gracious in the postmortem and I was very appreciative of him playing me those four games and going over them.
My pool of people to play is about to dry up. I need more players to play! I'd prefer to play a 4-game series of 75 15 games, but one-off games are perfectly ok too. G/60, 45 45, G/90 ... whatever ... just that it's a longish game. I'll play pretty much anyone ... I think I'd have to draw the line at 1875. If you're around the 1875, give or take 25 rating points, I'm not sure I'd be of any use other than to be utterly humiliated :-) ... but if you're 1875 or below, I'd be willing to take a shot.
