Cigar Smoking World Championship “Stay Strong” Winter Season 2020

The Cigar Smoking World Championship “Stay Strong” Winter Season 2020 started in October. Hauke Walter from Germany (the world champion 2018) returned to the competition with big a strong result. He won the competition in 235 minutes before the runner-up Andrey Leontev from Moscow who finished after 153 minutes. Andrey Leontev is one of three Russians on the Top Ten list of the “Stay Strong” season. Uwe Domasch (Germany) took the third place at 123 minutes.

“The new top 10 list shows clearly that the smoking times are increasing with the new competition cigar, the Rocky Patel CSWC”, says CSWC-founder Marko Bilic. “Because the Stay Strong Season is somewhat an emergency season we will not mix it with the real live competitions”, Mr. Bilic added, “but still, these online results show how interesting and exciting the next live season will be. For sure, the online competitions are a great opportunity for slow smokers to get more skilled and get ready for real thing.”

The CSWC partners remain the same for the Stay Strong Season: Cuervo y Sobrinos, Les Fines Lames, Boveda and Cigar Journal.

His journalistic career began in 1979 as a freelancer for German-language newspapers in the US, and later for Austrian media including Die Wochenpresse and Das Wirtschaftsblatt. For ten years he also produced programs for over 60 radio stations around the world. In 1994, Reinhold C. Widmayer devoted himself to all things cigar, publishing technical articles in cigar magazines. He began working for Cigar Journal in 2001 and became editor-in-chief in 2005; under his auspices the journal has established itself as the world’s leading cigar magazine.
