Double Extractor Technique for Zerg

This technique, or trick as some consider it, is typically used before or after the first Overlord has been created, allowing to to slip in one extra worker for a slight advantage in the early-round. Players can use this bonus unit for scouting, harassing, expanding or pushing towards an offensive build.

Basically, you will erect the cheapest building possible, an Extractor, which subtracts 1 from Supply, followed by the creation of a single Drone unit before canceling the Extractor, allowing for 1 extra Supply beyond the maximum.

Double Extractor Technique Build Order

Create Drones to 10/10
At 10/10, build Extractor
At 9/10, create Drone
10/10, Cancel Extractor. Supply is now 11/10


Baneling/Roach Rush Versus Terran

The objective of this build is to punch a hole through a Walled-In Terran using Siege Tanks or Banshees. This build will hurt your economy if it doesn't pay off, though it can be salvaged, so this isn't an “ALL-IN” bet, but pretty darn close.
