Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
The running English doesn't change the angle out of the 1st rail and there isn't enough contact on the 2nd rail to modify the path. The angle out is very obvious on the 3rd rail, which sends the ball towards the pocket.
The angle back off the 2nd rail is going to depend on how close the ball hits the rail near the pocket. Just a small amount of overlap will get the result shown. A small amount away from the pocket will bring the ball back to it's starting position. Play with this.
The reverse spin really takes affect on the 1st rail because it comes in almost perpendicular. This pulls the cue ball right back at the starting position.
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.
