Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
The left spin on the ball send the ball down-table with running English on the 2nd and 3rd rail. This sends the ball towards the side pocket. The ball will travel back towards the 1st rail contact point. The mechanical bridge will be required, which needs close attention to the tip/ball contact point to get this path.
Back and forth is the expected path. The mechanical bridge stroke must be very precise to make sure the stroke is straight. The bridge will also have to be quickly removed to get out of the ball path.
The right spin on the ball send it straight down-table into the corner pocket. This is actually a verification that you applied a true "one-tip-out" 1:30 hit on the ball. BTW, on an 8 foot table, you can reach the corner pocket with 1-1/4 tip out. On a 7 foot table, you'll need 1-1/2 tip out from center.
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.
