Here's the setup of the shot, complete with ghost balls
The 3-5 combo line is aimed at the long rail point of the far corner pocket to allow for throw .
I put the cue ball along the long centerline of the table, 2.5 diamonds from the short rail. I aim at the right edge of the 3 ball and hit it firm with center ball. If the 1 ball doesn't hit the long rail, move the 3 ball further left in the setup in ~1/8 ball increments. It doesn't take much. If the 2 doesn't get to the pocket, hit it harder.
This is a simple extension of Jopling's 3 ball shot invented by Bill "Willie Jopling" Marshall.
