Notes
The Overpool is an opening used by the Zerg. It is comparable to 10 Pool in that it can be a fast, aggressive opening. However, it delays the building of the Spawning Pool by 100 minerals in order to get an Overlord out first. No longer being supply capped, the Zerg can more freely make Drones for a better economy, whereas the attack timing is only slightly later. In addition, the Overpool works as it did in the original Starcraft. A defensive, anti-Zergling harass build that is able to get Zerglings out in time to defend against quicker pools, while still maintaining its normal economical advantage over faster pools.

Other Information
This build can easily transfer into other builds such as the 2 Hatch Hydra (vs. Protoss) build made famous by LaLush. However, it does lag behind in economy in comparison to other later pools.
