The magnificent site was crowded with slow smoking competitors after a nice day on open, in Villa garden where they enjoyed activities and good music. Dmitry Smirnov was the competition's chief judge, and he oversaw a large group of contestants who successfully pushed CSWC Rocky Patel cigars to their limits.

The race began, and the results were excellent. Two rookies brilliantly ended the race with outstanding results. Alexander Ostrovskiy won the title of Latvian Champion 2023 with outstanding results. Second, newcomer Olexandr Lytvynenko finished in third position, and Nikola Branjak - well known from last year when he took second place - did the same this year, by deserving a significant second place with only a slightly more than minute difference from Alexander, the Latvian Champion 2023.
