Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.19 Commentary

Update Saturday 8th January 2022 22:19 GMT

A little bit late in writing this commentary so apologies.  I’m still fighting a really tiring cough and cold.

But to get on with the Commentary, it’s congratulations to YIHAO for taking 1st Place with a lot of effort, 121 Attempts for a score of 91 WPM and a close to perfect 99.28% accuracy.  We admire that.  Let’s hope that you can hold onto the top spot but there is still three weeks to go before the competition ends so anything can happen.

In 2nd Place is fast typist wowslee.  We can see from your User Data Page that you’ve recorded 100+ WPM scores in the Daily £5 and Weekly £10 competitions so we feel that you still have gas in the tank.  Come back and see if you can get a 100 WPM score in this monthly competition.  Currently you have 71 WPM with 98.3% accuracy in just 19 Attempts.

Our recent new competitor from Pakistan, Haider Azam continues to impress with the dedication he puts into getting a good score.  At the moment Haider has 51 WPM and 98.22% accuracy, a solid score to take 3rd Place, but with care and patience we’re sure you can improve on this.  Just slow down and concentrate and control your breathing and check your posture and you could see a good increase in your speed and accuracy.

In 4th Place is that phenomenon from Canada, typos_z, the typist who blasted through every typing test in November 2021 and established in new records in just about every one of them.  For some reason typos_z hasn’t hit his stride yet in this monthly competition but as and when he does we could be in for a surprise.  The current record score for the Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition is held by Xeogran from Poland with a massive 217 WPM and 99.16% first time accuracy.  

Regular competitor Liq lang is in 5th Place with 31 WPM/90.6% accuracy followed in 6th Place by Atwesh Pradeep with 21 WPM and 90.18% accuracy. 

Supporting everyone on the scoreboard at the moment is Big Xiao with 59 WPM and 85.96% accuracy.

Three weeks to go and £30 to be won.  Let’s see what happens.

Update Wednesday 12th January 2022  16:29

Just a small change so far this week;  regular competitor Atwesh Pradeep has entered the scoreboard in 4th Place, above typos_z!  Atwesh Pradeep has 22 WPM with 96.97% accuracy and so everyone who was in 4th Place or below has moved one place.

Update Tuesday 25th January 19:53 GMT

No changes at the top of the scoreboard although YIHAO, who is already in 1st Place, has returned to increase his score from 91 WPM to a world class 112WPM and an accuracy o 99.13%.  That’s take 153 Attempts and we take our hat off to YIHAO for his exemplary determination.  Wowslee remains in 2nd Place and Haider Azam in 3rd Place, but Haider has also returned but hasn’t been able to improve his current score of 51 WPM and 98.22% accuracy.

Now, here’s the big news.  That fabulously fast Canadian typist, typos_z, has been relegated to 6th Place by two of our regular competitors, Atwesh Pradeep and Liq lang. who scored 22 WPM with 96.97% accuracy and 32 WPM with 95.93% accuracy respectively.  This is because accuracy matters in bsbltyping.com competitions and although typos_z scored a withering 153 WPM he only achieved 90.88% accuracy, and that in 25 Attempts. We have great respect for typos_z – he tore through all our Typing Test scoreboards setting new records – and so we’d like to hear from typos_z if he reads this to find out if he has encountered any technical glitches that have prevented him from achieving good accuracy.  We know that sometimes there’s a glitch in the system so please get in touch if there was such an incident, and if not, please return and see if you can move up the scoreboard.

Supporting everyone at the moment is Big Xiao with a solid 59 WPM but just 85.96% accuracy.

There’s only six days to go and someone has to win the thirty quid, so keep trying smiley
