if you pull drones you dive into his mineral line and make him fight.
i have had the same question for a very long time, but even if u pull drones it makes no difference, you simply mineral walk away once u have 150 minerals + and build a queen at your natural, then build lings with remaining money, he kills your main and has a worthless crawler that he cant root at your nat...10pool is just silly.
Lol 10 pool is the safest opening zvz in case of 6 poolers which I run into a lot. Plus you can macro out of it. Best thing is focus down the expo (depending when he put his pool down because sometimes you can snipe it when it still building and there is no way to mineral walk out to where it usually is so drones that come help will die) and then tech to banes and try to hit his min line with like 4. use the other 4 lings to go back home and defend in case he makes a ton of lings and tries to counter. Always make 8 lings to focus down the hatchery at the expo or it wont die in time...
Cancel definitely puts you behind, if doesn't cost anything for the attacker, although technically it's costs something when you take a drone off line to scout, which is the usual case, and there is a cost to making lings rather than extra drones, so it's not necessarily a huge advantage for the attacker if the defender has droned up instead of scouting or making lings. Still, 150 minerals dead loss is a lot 3 minutes in.
So the attacker definitely has the initiative, whether he wins or not depends on what he does with it.
