CSWC CAME TO KAZAHSTAN -  Almaty will host the first Kazakhstan Regional Stage of the CSWC World Championship for slow smoking of cigars. Members of the Kazakhstan Cigar Club participated in three CSWC tournaments in Azerbaijan, and every time they thought about holding such a tournament in Kazakhstan. At the last tournament in 2022, at the suggestion of the CSWC International Judge Yevgeniy Zhidkov, even the Battle was held. The Azerbaijan team was against the Kazakhstan team. And although the experienced team of Azerbaijan won an unconditional victory in this fight, this only gave a new impetus to the Kazakhstan Cigar Club to hold its own Tournament.

Because of amazing CSWC people on board, such as International Judge Yevgeniy Zhidkov, who is brilliantly promoting the idea and experience of CSWC, CSWC is spreading all over the world. In this manner, he brought the CSWC to Kazakhstan. It is a true honor for us to put Kazakhstan on the CSWC map. We are very excited to meet and form new genuine friendships with our Kazahstan cigar brothers and sisters. - Marko Bilic, CSWC Founder

Great first promotion of the CSWC experience in Kazakhstan

Therefore, we were very happy when Marko Bilic responded to our request to host a qualifying tournament in Kazakhstan. The CSWC tournament will be held as part of the Kazakhstan International Spring Cigar Festival. And its participants will be residents of the largest cities of the country: Astana, Almaty, Aktau, Atyrau and Karaganda. There were also guests from Uzbekistan, Belarus and Azerbaijan. We hope that we will be able to make a bright and interesting page in the wonderful history of CSWC.
