PartinG's "Adios Amigo" Cannon Rush
This is a different take on a Cannon rush because it opens with a Gateway before getting a Forge, quickening the pace at which you're able to get tech onto the field after securing a Cannon contain. You're going to be using this to your advantage by following up with an extremely quick Immortal/Warp Prism attack.
The trade-off for having faster tech is that this particular Cannon rush is completely ineffective against a Zerg who opens Spawning Pool first, requiring a transition to a different opening if such a build is scouted.
This build can be characterised as a cheese as it's unlikely to work if the opponent knows that it's coming early enough and also knows the correct response.
