Onski is an American Super Smash Bros. 64 player, Kirby main, tournament organizer and Smash64 commentator. Originally from the Bay Area, he attended San Francisco State University and ran the Competitive Gaming Community (CGC @ SFSU), which hosted bi-weekly Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Smash Bros. 64, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournaments. He ran over 25 tournaments during his 2 year Presidency before graduating in 2010.
Onski now plays Smash64 exclusively and is currently ranked #8 on the Autumn SoCal Power Rankings. His play-style is unorthodox, favoring stylized and experimental combos over standard and safer options. Onski is undefeated in $50 money matches, besting Blondekid at Operation Desert Smash II in 5 games, and MrMarbles in 4 games (Saffron ONLY) at Boss Battle 2.
Onski was one of the pioneer filmmakers in the Smash community, shooting several hours of tournament footage and interviews that were being compiled for a documentary. He ultimately shelved the project when he moved to Los Angeles.
CGC @ SFSU
Onski revived the Competitive Gaming Community from inactivity in Fall of 2008 and initially began the club by running Brawl bi-weeklies on Saturdays in the Humanities Building at San Francisco State University. After six tournaments, Onski added Melee Singles & Doubles to the roster at CGC @ SFSU VII, at a time when Brawl was at its peak and Melee was supposedly dying, Melee Singles entrants totaled at 49 nearly doubling Brawl's 25 entrants. Onski would go on to run 2 majors and over 25 installments of the bi-weekly tournaments before "retiring" via graduation in 2010.
