CB location (Q1), Target Diamond (C9)
Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
It's worth remembering that 2-rail reverse spin shots help make the path off the 2nd rail closer to parallel to the line to the first rail. Consider reverse spin for other similar situations.
Similar to the "round-the-world" shot - but further down the cushion, this is a good way to reach a big ball in that corner. Notice that is also passes right through the foot spot - in case the target ball is on that line.
The corner pattern just doesn't change much, even though the cue ball is moving with running English. The angle off the 2nd and 3rd rail are opened up - but cancel out when the ball comes into the corner. Also note, the cue ball does travel to the opposite diagonal corner, so any big ball there is easy to reach.
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.
