Honestly you should probably just run safer builds and tighten up your build. There are lots of builds you can run that are safe against pretty much anything without even having to scout. That's probably much better to advance in lower leagues instead of trying to make tons of adjustments to your build based on scouting information.

This is actually incorrect. Double gas with 2 probes on each is used for a 3 stalker rush with MSC which is fairly standard. You can do a gateway pressure, robo build, or expand off of this.
1 gas can be a fast expand build, but the saved up chronoboost does probably indicate a 4-gate. I scout off 13 after the gateway, but a 3 stalker rush with MSC is pretty safe overall.
PvT zealot, stalker, MSC is enough to safely expand off of even against a proxy 2-rax. Photon overcharge is just really really good.
PvZ you normally 9-scout off a FFE (you don't need to off a gateway expand, as a 13 scout suffices or you scout with a warp prism if you're naniwa).
6-pool needs a cannon in your mineral line.
8-pool is map dependent. you can either completely wall the natural on some maps or you place a cannon in your mineral line and natural.
10-pool you can almost always just completely wall your natural.
14-pool is standard and you can run your build as normal. Actually it's possible to nexus first and hold any lings from a 14-pool.
I haven't streamed in awhile but I'm planning to stream tonight starting around 5:30pm MDT with the theme of never scouting in masters and running safe economic builds if you want to check it out.
