Look at the top of the Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.9 scoreboard and see the name of one of he world's fastest and most accurate typists; charliegr.

Fresh from achieving his personal best score of 154 WPM with 100% accuracy in our Weekly £10 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.49, charliegr moved to express his extraordinary typing skills in our Monthly competition and in just 1 Attempt marked up a score of 103 WPM with 96.85%  Not bad for a single attempt!  It's a score that is vulnerable to challenge by quite a number of our past competitors so charliegr is likely to have to defend it, but for now he's in his usual fast typist scoreboard place, at the top.

In 2nd Place is our regular competitor Atwesh Pradeep with 32 WPM and 92.06% accuracy and supporting the other competitors in 3rd Place is Sol B with a solid 62 WPM but he's in 3rd Place because of only 87.16% accuracy.  However, the closing date for the competition is three weeks away so anything can happen.

Keep watching this scoreboard!

Update Wednesday 24th March 2021   10:20

We have to doff our caps to AnnaE, our very capable and very tenacious fast typist competitor from the United States.  AnnaE  is a Weekly £10 Prize Fastest Typist Hall of Famer, in itself quite an achievement since our bsbltyping competitions are perhaps the most challenging on the Internet.  However, AnnaE hasn't yet quite managed to replicate this success in our Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competitions, although she has been trying hard!  Since Competition No.4, back in October 2020, AnnaE has been taking part in the Monthly competitions and although she has achieve 120+ WPM in two of these competitions her accuracy has let her down and she hasn't been able to hold on to the top spot all the way to the close of the competition.  This time though, she is closer than ever!  - just check out the scoreboard - AnnaE has pushed charliegr down to second place with a score of 130 WPM and 99.44% accuracy; excuciatingly close to that perfect 100% accuracy.  This score is almost - but not quite - up to the level of another of our competitors, the mighty PicklePower, one of very fastest typists in the world.  His Monthly £30 Fastest Prize Competition scores were 137, 147 and 132 WPM, all with 100% accuracy.  AnnaE isn't far off this level.  This is amazing.

In 2nd Place is another of the world's fastest typists, charliegr, who recently became a Weekly £10 Prize Fastest Typist Competition Hall of Famer with one of the fastest bsbltying.com competition typing speeds recorded, 154 WPM with a perfect 100% first time accuracy. We'll see if charliegr responds, he's only made 1 Attempt so far this month and that was a pretty solid 103 WPM with 96.85% accuracy.... it should make for an interesting match...

Regular competitor Atwesh Pradeep is in 3rd Place with 32 WPM and 92.06% accuracy and Big Xiao and Sol B follow in 4th and 5th Places with solid 58 and 62WPM respectively and high eighties accuracies.  This shows the huge comparison between 'normal' and 'good' typists and those elite fast typists like AnneE and Charliegr who are on an altogether different level. This is why at bsbltyping.com we limit the number of wins that elite typists can achieve and we move them into our league tables of Winners, Champions and Hall of Famers so that everyone else can have a chance of winning.  Our elite typists can then compete against each other in BIG MATCHES for higher cash prizes, although even here we allow or regular competitors to have a WILDCARD place in the BIG MATCHES where they can have a chance of winning a cash prize too.

There is still a week to go, let's see who else might compete.

Update Wednesday 31st March 2021   15:41 BST

If you look across to the Weekly £10 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.53 scoreboard you'll see that our recent new competitor from the UK, Silus, is sitting in 1st Place and it looks like he's making a challenge on the top spot of the Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition too.

With just over 4 hours to go, AnnaE is still in the top spot with that remarkable 130 WPM and a very high, but not perfect, 99.44% accuracy.  It's that accuracy figure that leaves AnnaE vulnerable; it's not quite perfect and if you look back through the previous 8 Monthly scoreboards, there is only one accuracy score that is below 99.44%.  All of the other winning entries have been higher than this.  It's going to be a nerve wracking 4 hours for AnnaE!  Her first win is within reach, and she has certainly earned full marks for persistence and steadfastness of purpose.

charliegr, a proven elite fast typist is in 2nd Place, having made only 1 Attempt so far.  Who knows what he might achieve if he returns to the contest.  

Regular competitor Atwesh Pradeep is in 3rd Place with 32 WPM and 92.06% accuracy and then, in 4th Place, brooding perhaps, is Silus, with 90 WPM and 90.25%.  Yes, Silus, the dynamics of the Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition and very different from the Weekly competition which is a finite one minute challenge.

In 5th and 6th Places are regular competitors Big  Xiao and Sol B with 58 and 62 WPM and 87.83% and 87.16% respectively.  

Let's see what happens next....


Finally, in this update, I want to acknowledge that our competition Scoreboard and Nameboards are loading very, very slowly at the moment.
