CSWC Romania: Felix Matei took home this year’s title

Despite burning the ring, earning a 15 minute penalty, pre-competition favorite Felix Matei convincingly took home this year’s title as Romanian slow smoking champion.

It was never rally any doubt. Six smokers managed to stay with him for an hour, but then they dropped off one by one. When Lucian Laza’s cigar went out at 1 hour, 37 minutes and 39 seconds, Matei was the only one left, for almost another hour.

“Felix Matei confirmed his status as the best Romanian smoker,” organizer Radu-Alexandru Cucuta, says. “He improved his time from last year and set a new national record, despite the penalty.”

Nachdem Simon Lundh 2005 sein Ingenieursdiplom in Vermessungstechnik erwarb, entschied er sich für eine journalistische Laufbahn. Er entdeckte die Welt der Zigarren während er für eine nichtstaatliche Organisation in Estelí, Nicaragua, arbeitete und verdient seinen Lebensunterhalt nun größtenteils mit Artikeln über Zigarren, Metal Music und Tattoos sowie Reiseberichten.
