6 pool is more all-in, protoss has to take probes off mining to defend
9 pool+speed can be used for early containment or some sort of ling break
overpool is economically the best because the ovie comes out soon enough so you don't have to sacrifice any economy but spawning pool is later then 9 pool, but not by much

It means the supply you are at when you build something. overpool simply means you build your pool right after your first overlord is finished

overpool USUALLY refers to 12 pool + gas. That is usually, but strat is right it can refer to anything (aka 9 overlord 9 pool).

What do the numbers on the left mean? how many probes to have at the point?

Build:
8/9 Pylon (scout if enemy went random)
10/17 Gateway (scout if you have not already)
12/17 Gateway (11/17 if you scouted late)
13/17 Zealot, Pylon (in that order, hotkey and rally gate to choke)
17/25 2 Zealots, Pylon* (in that order, hotkey and rally other gate to choke)

why do zerg have so much problems with cannons ? or any faction vs cannon rush is so easy to counter and scout out. .

all you do is run your scouting w/e it is, and if the gateway isn't halfway or fully done, something is fishy or if there's no gas or their cybernetics core is real late ?
