The event was marked by intense competition and remarkable performances, culminating in a new national record.

   In the fifth Azerbaijan CSWC Championship held in Baku 20 participants took part. Two-time Champion of Azerbaijan, a member of Baku Cigar Club Elnur Adilov was the clear favorite. But the cigar began to burn "spoon", and being carried away by fixing this problem Elnur "went out" at 47 minutes of the tournament. Ayhan Askerov took the third place with the result 1:16:21. Two participants fought for the first place in the next 40 minutes. As a result, the second place with the result 1:47:52 was taken by Elnur Mammadov, a newcomer to the tournament. And the new Champion of Azerbaijan with the result 1:58:51 was Samir Rzayev, a member of the board of the Cigar Club "The Afisionados of Baku", having set both his personal record and the record of Azerbaijan! 

Participation of Anastasia Arsenova and Elnur Adilov in the tournament gave a great "push" to all participants of the Championship and allowed to show good results to newcomers of the tournament. And the guests of the tournament, who went on a three-day trip to Azerbaijan after the end of the tournament, highly appreciated the beauty of nature of our country and the organization of the whole event. The participants of the trip managed to smoke in one of the most ancient cities of Azerbaijan Sheki, and on the top of Tufandag mountain, which is about 2 kilometers high. To see the sights of Shemakha city, to visit multicolored mountains and to taste wonderful cuisine of different regions of our country.   I hope that next year the Championship of Azerbaijan will be visited by more "cigar" athletes from different countries, and we will try to organize for them both a wonderful tournament and a great tourist program.

Anastasia Arsenova, who this year decided to participate in all the tournaments held by judge Yevgeniy Zhidkov in order to show the best time, gave up at the second minute of the third hour, realizing that the cigar will not allow her to show a better result than in Kazakhstan.

Looking ahead, International Judge Yevgeniy Zhidkov expressed optimism for the future, hoping that next year's Azerbaijan Championship will attract even more "cigar athletes" from around the world. The organizers are committed to delivering not only an exceptional tournament but also an unforgettable tourist experience for all participants.
