Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
This is a great shot that covers a lot of territory on the table. It can reach big balls in two different corners. The ball does travel further than show because all the rails are hit with running English.
This pattern covers almost a third of the table area. It's a nice up and down coverage pattern. This concept is also useful in long narrow sections of the table.
Another back-handed way to cover the row of diamonds and a ball setting on the diagonal line.
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.
