Manuel "Grubby" Schenkhuizen is a Dutch player who plays Protoss in StarCraft II, and Orc in WarCraft III.

In WC3, Grubby has won more than 38 LAN tournaments, six of which are World Championship titles. He has been consistently ranked in the Top 10 WarCraft III players in terms of winnings each year since 2004.

Rather than joining another team in SC2, Grubby decided to go for solo sponsorship. SteelSeries supported him throughout 2011, but the sponsorship was dropped due to insufficient tournament results and overall exposure. He announced Twitch.TV as his new sponsor in early 2012.

After the award ceremony of Blizzcon 2009 where he took 2nd place, Grubby proposed to his girlfriend and former Ms. Singapore Universe 2004 contestant, Cassandra "PpG" Ng on-stage. He is also featured in the documentary film "Beyond The Game" along with other WarCraft III pro-gamers.

Grubby had put his playing career on hold, but did not officially retire. He began casting StarCraft II events, but also dove into casting Heroes of the Storm.
