Re-expanding will not work.

It's not exactly new; seen it in bw, I've had it done to me twice on the ladder, both of which were successful, but I never really gave it a second thought. On maps where this is possible, I might actually consider it, since it's a free win (They would also have to scout first, see forge, and send two probes behind their mineral line.)

This may or may not put you ahead in PvT as well. Hard to say; would depend on whether or not they came to you with early marines (if not you can just fast expand and be way way ahead)
u still bronze reach
