CB location (Q1), Target Diamond (M9)
Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
Another surprising result with reverse spin (and why you should practice these shots). The ball comes in at the foot string diamond. The reverse spin holds it so that the area around the foot spot is covered.
The 12:00 spin on the cue ball slightly curves the path of the cue ball off the 1st rail, which brings it straight into the side pocket.
This is a great way to reach that corner to contact a big ball. It's also a pattern your opponent won't expect you to know. His surprise and subsequent nervousness of your demonstrated knowledge might be worth one or two extra games in a match.
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.
