Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.27 Commentary

Monthly £30  Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.27

Update Sunday 11th September  2022 10:25 BST

I need to start with some general messages tonight.

  1. I apologise for the lack of a Daily £5 Prize Fastest Typist Competition this week, it was my fault it didn't start.  I enjoy martial arts and fitness training and over the past month I've picked up a number of training injuries which individually didn't actually have much effect on me but a recent heavy blow received in boxing sparring and an awkward fall onto a hard wooden floor during Krav Maga training were two final items that caused me not be able sleep on Sunday, Monday night and Tuesday nights and left me feeling absolutely exhausted and at the time that the Daily Competition should have started on Tuesday evening at 8pm I had simply, at last, fallen asleep.

However, I'm on the mend now, taking it a little bit easy, and I'm now writing up the various commentaries and getting back on top of things.

  1. I would also like to thank wholeheartedly members of our wonderful international speed typing community who sent us kind words and thoughts with regard to the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.  Your thoughts are very appreciated.  I was born in 1949 and I grew up seeing  the beautiful young Queen Elizabeth throughout my life.  She was a part of the fabric of this wonderful, tiny group of countries that make up Great Britain and she will be sadly missed, her passing marks the end of an age.  However, we now have a new King, King Charles III and our monarchy continues, as it has done for centuries, it’s one of the defining virtues of Britain.
  2. Moving on, you might be pleased to hear that we're very close to sending out the invitations for the first ever Daily Winners £25 Big Match which is due take place on Tuesday 4th and 5th October 2022, with further Big Matches scheduled after that.  As ever with all of our Big Matches, all Winners of a Daily £5 Prize Fastest Typist Competition will receive an automatic invitation to take part and will receive either a £5 Amazon Gift Card or £5 cash to show our appreciation of the support of our Winners for taking part in the Big Match.

So, back to the Update for Monthly £30 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.27

We see that multiple Daily £5 and Weekly £10 competition Winner, Moiz Hussain from Pakistan, is at the top of the scoreboard with a world class 105 WPM and 98.65% in 23 Attempts.  Maybe Monthly Competition No.27 will a first Monthly Competition win for Moiz.  We’ll have to wait and see, it’s still only the 11th of the month and anything can happen – and usually does.

In 2nd Place with 79 WPM and 97.52%  is a fast typist from the US, BlowZedBlowZed is currently below the Previous Personal Best of 91 WPM and 98.89% accuracy of Monthly Competition No.26.  Can BlowZed improve this score and maybe beat that Previous Personal Best?  Let’s wait and see.

Regular player kavitha appam from India has only made 2 Attempts so far and hasn’t achieved that trademark high accuracy score that kavitha usually attains with just 94.94% accuracy and 38 WPM.  Maybe it’s because the text has more numbers and upper case characters this month, it’s not as easy to type as previous texts.  But, that’s the fun of the challenge.  Please come back and show us what you can really do, your Previous Personal Best was a very solid 60WPM with 97.91% accuracy in Monthly Competition No.25 so you’ve got a good target to aim for.

WayneL from the UK is currently supporting everyone in 4th Place with 42 WPM and 94.08% accuracy, a long way below Wayne’s Previous Personal Best, but that’s just in 2 Attempts.  Come back Wayne and show us what you can do.

We still have nearly three weeks to go, so there’s plenty of time to practice and increase your scores.

On Tuesday at 8  p.m. BST we start the Daily £5 Prize Fastest Typist Competition No.41 so get yourself warmed up on the Weekly £10 and Monthly £30 competitions and then launch yourself on the Daily £5 competition ????

 A final thought, if anyone is going to be smashing records, think about recording it and putting the video online.  People like to see people typing fast, especially where there’s a cash prize involved.
