The Importance of Tactics

I was surprised that Magnus Carlsen missed several tactics in his game yesterday but he did seem a bit out of sorts. Black’s 33…Rxc5 had probably been missed by White and then later he must have missed 36…Qa4!, which was a killer. It all shows the importance of tactics, which is why I do my Chessity every day!
