(TML) Table Map Library - M3 to A3

For information on the Table Map Library, how it works and how the information was researched - read "Table Map Library - Introduction"

CB location (M3), Target Diamond (A3)

Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.

M3 to A3

10:30 Analysis

Make sure you practice this so that you have a perfect 10:30 spin. The ball comes back straight into the corner pocket. This is a good way  to get to a jawed ball.

12:00 Analysis

This is a true back and forth. A little shift on the 1st rail can make sure to completely cover a ball anywhere in the row of diamonds on either side.

1:30 Analysis

If you count the diamonds for the 10:30, a long rail kick with 10:30 goes 3 diamonds when it comes back up table. For 1:30, there is a 1/2 diamond distance loss because of the 2nd rail contact. This is because a bit of energy is lost in the cushion, so it only comes back 2-1/2 diamonds.

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.
