CB location (Q5), Target Diamond (A9 long)
Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
No reverse spin is lot on the first rail, so the entire result comes off the 2nd rail. This sends the cue ball right back to its starting point - and back down table to the corner pocket. Practice this one - it's a good-to-know shot.
This is a good way to get to the corner pocket. Plus, on contact at the 3rd rail, it comes in with reverse spin. This straightens out the ball (which makes it easy to get to a ball anywhere on that long rail .
The running English sends the ball around the table and will continue to the area near the first short-rail diamond from pocket.
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.
