I start by placing the 5 ball four ball widths out from the side rail with its inside edge even with the point of the side pocket.
Align the 3-5 combination back towards the point of the far side pocket.
I like to have the cue ball behind the long center line of the table. Aim to shoot the 5 ball about 1/2 way between the side pocket and where the 5-3 line is aimed with tons of draw. The 3 ball may have issues on certain tables if the rail's aren't grabbing the spin.
I first saw a video of Chao Fong Pang shooting a version of this shot, but without the draw.
