CB location (Q5), Target Diamond (Q9 long)
Practice this TML pattern on your table until each one becomes a known and trustworthy shot.
The cue ball picks up additional running English on the 2nd rail. When it gets to the 3rd rail, it spins out towards the middle of the table.
When you have to kick to a ball in this row of rail diamonds, this is a good way to make sure you have more than one opportunity to make a legal hit.
The spin off the 1st rail is predictable. When it contacts the 2nd rail the cue ball comes in with reverse English. This straightens out the path and slows down the ball.
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.
