I realised today that I have serious flaws in my play when it comes to positions, paying attention, and reading people.

I've recently learnt of Annette Oberstad's amazing blind tourney play and decided to give it a shot to improve the things listed above.

To start I played 1 - Table sit and goes. (Not real money)

First go I literally died in a few hands.

10 : 18 (2nd go) - 10 : 25 WINS: 0

10 : 28 (3rd go) - 10 : 41 WINS: 1 (big)

(4th go) WINS: 2 (small) Accidently didn't record time.

10 : 56 (5th go) - 11 : 14 2nd Place

I found that it was hard when 1. Players All-in'd
2. During heads up or 3's players started to catch on that I played positions, and never switched my play, so they would all-in and stop me.

During 5th game I knocked out the 3rd last player by getting him short stacked, and the other player finishing him off.

I'd like to continue this play because it is quite interesting. Any tips on positions, reading people, bet sizes and paying attention would be appreciated. Especially I need help when it comes to a head's up situation. Or any better methods to improve the above would also be appreciated.
