Kenneth Heilfron, new Ticket to Ride World Champion! Tue, 04 November 2014 15:32
After an epic day of competition, Kenneth (USA) is crowned 2014 World Champion !

The previously announced champion, Erwin Pauelsen, has resigned his title after the discovery of evidence of cheating during the final matches.

Kenneth conquered his title after a year long marathon of tournaments which gathered more than 25,000 players all over the world and led the 28 National Champions in Issy-les-Moulineaux near Paris, France for the final stage of the Ticket to Ride World Championship tournament.

After seven more rounds on various Ticket to Ride maps, the final ranking is as follows:
- 2014 Ticket to Ride Champion: Kenneth Heilfron (USA)
- 2nd Place: Michel Hautec½ur (Belgium)
- 3rd Place: Piotr Hrachun (Russia)

Kenneth (pictured above) wins the title and the Grand Prize: an unforgettable trip for two to Asia on the Eastern & Oriental Express! Congrats!

We also would like to thank everyone who allowed this championship to occur, especially the hundreds of volunteers who helped run Ticket to Ride events worldwide! It's refreshing to see that the board game world, specifically the Ticket to Ride community, is still mostly filled with friendly and fair competitors.

You can find more details on the unfortunate event that shadowed this otherwise great championship in the Press Release on our website.
