Tactically, the Bolsheviks seized key railroad, telegraph and military installations that paralyzed the Provisional Government and kept it from being able to coordinate a defense.

The Bolsheviks were a minority Marxist revolutionary group that most revolutionaries did not want to have full governmental power. The other parties did feel that it would be better to have the Provisional Government overthrown and work out the details of other parties participating in the government later. The feeling was that the Bolsheviks would be outvoted and removed. They actually thought the Bolsheviks would permit other parties to participate in the new government. They were wrong.

The Bolsheviks had been recruiting followers in the army. They had so many that many units simply refused to obey orders and turned on their officers and shot them.

By October, the Bolsheviks had many of their followers as members of the local councils of workers, soldiers and peasants called soviets. The Provisional Government had an agreement with the soviets that it would not pass any major legislation without first consulting the soviets. Thus, the Bolsheviks had the support of the soviets, which had strong influence on what was done in the government and they backed the Bolsheviks.

In the Russian revolution of 1917 were the czars defeated by the communists?

No, they were not. The czar was toppled in the February Revolution of 1917 when the army and police refused to obey his orders to quell rioting and demonstrations against his rule were going on in Petrograd, Moscow and other cities. An interim government called the Provisional Government was created to govern until a Constitutional Assembly could be elected to make a new constitution. The "communists" (at that time still named Bolsheviks) toppled the Provisional Government in the October Revolution of 1917. By this time, the czar had already been defeated and was no longer in power. So, to be precise, the czar was not defeated by the communists.
