CB location (Q1), Target Diamond (A9 long)
Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
Really, really cool shot. Learn how to make this work. Once you own it, it is easily adapted to bring the cue ball back in good control. If you need to come back to hit a target ball lower on the long rail, use 11:00.
It is a little unexpected to see the cue ball go straight to the side pocket. See the 1:30 shot for a miss. Or, come up-table about a half-diamond to make sure to miss the side pocket.
There just isn't much time for the cue ball to react to the rail with running English. There isn't enough of a change in the angle where the cue ball hits the 2nd rail to make much different between this and the 12:00.
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.
