It is good to practice tactics under different conditions though. Not only individual mental and physical conditions. but also external conditions like different environments and times.

I mean it is unlikely every chess game or tournament you play will be under your own controlled conditions.

Well it only took 6 months of being an ICC member, but I FINALLY won the nightly 5 0 :) And had a good time at a local tourney in Ripley, WV (about an hour from where I live in Ohio), met Shabalov and Iryna Zenyuk, made a nice draw (g&e pawns with rook each) against an expert, and beat a 1704 to make a nice 55 point rating gain up to 1611 USCF. On a bit of a roll if I do say so myself :)

After a dreadful tourney last fall, I picked up a breakthrough this weekend, beating a 2100, 1250, and 1825 rated players. Couldn't stay for the final round due to work, so I had to settle for tying for 2nd place in a G/60. Picked up a whopping 125 points to my rating, putting me just under 1700.
