What is the best defense against the pylon cannon rush? ----------------------------------------------------------- It seems very easy for an opponent to get a probe into your base and build cannons early game. What is the best way to stop this from happening?

Scout! ------------ Scout your enemy and scout your own base! You should be able to stop the rush as long as you kill the pylon / probe before the cannon appears... You could also kill the cannon while its building but once it appears you loose. If the cannon starts hitting your miners or nexus/hatch/command center, attempt to flee. Terran can fly away, zergs hatches only cost 300mins, protoss has the worst time because they need 400 mins to rebuild which is hard to find early in the game.
