Good build for newer players because they're very strong. Get your economy going and defend against Hellions with Queens and Zerglings so that you can put your Roach Warren down around 5:00. Check out this guide of Serral's ZvT for more

In this VOD, the Terran player goes for a Hellbat-Marine push that does quite a bit of damage, so the later timings are off.

Get up to 66 Drones and then crank out Roaches and Ravagers.

If you don't win with the initial push, the game gets a lot harder.

You can technically go up to 21 without an ove and make it at 26 instead of one of the zergling pairs. However, after that, you will still have to add the zerglings on but just after the overlord. They should hatch as the reaper arrives or maybe a bit later. But you should be able to defend with decent micro

I don't reccomend the slightly non-standard opening times. Just do a normal hatch-gas-pool.
