Freeze the cue ball and object ball perpendicular to the long rail around the 2nd diamond
I like to start with the butt of my cue a half diamond from the corner pocket where the 1 ball will go, along the short rail. I use full left and a tip of follow to start with. The more left you put, the further the 1 ball will throw towards the corner. It'll also cause the cue ball to run shorter. The top will compensate, bringing the cue ball longer. It's really just mix and match from there. Adjust the position of the cue and 1 balls according to how much left english you can put on it.
I first saw this shot on Yoshikazu Kimura's video.
