3 Hatch before Pool (vs. Protoss)
3 Hatch before Pool is a build aimed at ignoring early Zergling aggressiveness completely in order to build up your economy and Drone count very quickly.
- 12 Hatchery @ natural
- 13 Hatchery @ main or second natural
- 12 Pool
- Any Gateway first build.
3-4 player maps where FE is popular and scouting may be delayed.
Small maps, maps where the Protoss is likely to go Gateway first.
