Description

The match is Dark vs Stats on Abyssal reef, ~4:21 minutes into the vod of master's coliseum 2.

Dark's roach burrow all in versus Protoss. Doesn't really work against robo first, but is very powerful against stargate openers.

The goal of the build is to split two different roach armies in the Protoss base, one using a dropperlord and other roaches just attacking the front. Since the Protoss has trouble getting constant detection off of stargate, burrow allows you to use burrow micro effectively to get a lot of use out of each roach.

Analysis

The build comes down to doing burrow micro in two locations at once and can become difficult to do because of this.

At some point off of making roaches you will not have enough gas, at this point just get a second queen and make drones to transition with the extra minerals/larvae. You can pull the drones off gas at this point or keep mining gas and rally roaches with that only using the excess minerals/larvae to transition.
