  1. There are two variations or playstyles for the strategy. The first (Speedlings) is:

    - Keep morphing Drones until you have nine
    - 9 Overlord
    - When you have about 250 Minerals, select two Drones and order them to morph into a Spawning Pool and an Extractor
    - 7 Drone
    - 8 Drone
    - 9 Drone (The food count should be 10/17 and the Spawning Pool should be at about 50% Health, which is when you should start reserving larvae to have three Zerglings)
    - When the Extractor is finished, send three Drones to harvest some Vespene Gas. Be sure to stop harvesting gas as soon as you have 104 Gas.
    - As soon as the Spawning Pool is completed, morph three Zerglings
    As soon as you exceed 100 Gas, research the Metabolic Boost (Zergling speed) upgrade

    The second (regular Zerglings) is:

    9 Spawning Pool
    8 Drone
    9 Extractor
    8 Overlord
    9 Drone
    Six Zerglings.
    Keep morphing Zerglings until you have 300 minerals, then you can expand with a Hatchery.

    I noticed a tendency from progamers to use the first method. Speed-upgraded Zerglings are that much more powerful than non-upgraded ones. And if you're playing against a Protoss that's fast expanding behind a Pylon-Forge-Two Cannon wall, you should try your best to sneak at least two of these Zerglings past his wall, then you could wreak havoc upon his assembly line.
