The Chicago qualification tournament for the Cigar Smoking World Championship (CSWC) ended with another historical result. The previous world record (2:32:46 hours) set by Oleg Pedan from Russia on April 23, 2016 at La Grand Fumata in St. Petersburg has been broken – by two Americans. At the Chicago tournament at Biggs Mansion on May 19, former World Champion Darren Cioffi (US) achieved a smoking time of 2 hours and 40 minutes and is (again) holder of the world record.
To the surprise of all, a second participant from the US also broke Oleg Padan’s record with a smoking time of 2 hours and 34 minutes – Mr Eric Kyle. Kyle had won the Nashville tournament on May 13, 2016. Peter Worth finished third; the slowest female smoker was Ms Toni Scott.
