CB location (I5), Target Diamond (C1)

Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.

I5 to C1

10:30 Analysis

This sends the cue ball on a "V" pattern to the upper corner on the same side. It comes up a full diamond short of the pocket.

12:00 Analysis

On a 9 foot table, this goes straight to the pocket. The top spin on the cue ball does a slight curve on the path between the second and third rail - which brings it into the pocket. On a smaller table, the same shot will come in above the same pocket.

1:30 Analysis

Surprisingly, the reverse spin on the cue ball doesn't seem to have much of an effect on the 1:30 pattern, compared to the 10:30 and 12:00 pathways. On a smaller table, this shot should bring the cue ball into the corner pocket.

Other Sized Tables

For 8 foot tables, the same type of pattern requires about 1-1/4 tips out from center to get the paths shown. For 7 foot tables, 1-1/2 tip out from center is necessary to follow the pattern. The distances on small tables are less, so when the cue ball travels around in a trapezoid pattern, the rail contacts are more distorted.
