5:00 Minute Benchmark
Your first inject should finish by 5:00, which you should put into 4 sets of Zerglings (2630 supply). You can start your Queen and then an Overlord right away on 30. Immediately add your 4 new sets of Zerglings to control group 1 (While selecting 4 new Zergling Eggs, Hold Shift and Press 1) 6:00 Minute Benchmark
By 6 Minutes, you should have already started your 2nd gas at the expansion and used your double-inject to fill both your main gas and the new gas. Basically you start your Geyser on 36 at your expansion, then when the injects pop build three Drones in the main rallied into the main geyser, and three Drones at the expansion rallied into the expansion geyser (it times out really nicely so get it down ) You should supply block yourself to reach 44 supply by 6:00, then produce 2 Overlords. 7:00 Minute Benchmark
By 7:00, you should be in the mid-50s of
supply with creep spreading out past your expansion. You should still be on 2 geysers, with enough gas to start +1/+1 as soon as the Evolution Chambers finish. Also by 7:00, you should have 16 Drones mining at the main and the expansion (ie. 38 Drones.) 8:00 Minute Benchmark
This is absolutely the most crucial benchmark - by 8:00 you should have reached 60 supply then produced 1/1 Upgrades, the Lair, the Roach Warren, and the Baneling Nest. Use these structures as part of the wall. 8:00 Minute Benchmark - 2 Hatcheries, 3 Queens, 44 Drones (Fully-Saturating 2 Bases), 4 Gas, 2 Evo Chambers (upgrading 1/1) 5+ Creep Tumours, Roach Warren, Baneling Nest. Also by 8:00, you should have a fully-saturated main and natural with all 4 gas geysers (ie. 44 Drones). This is the economy that you will use to build up your second barrel. The 8 Min mark is the earliest that you can start your third with this build (you can delay as late as 11 Min).
Zerglings Eggs, Hold Control and Press 1).
