That is all fine and dandy if you are shooting on the same table day in and day out. If not, then you can spend 8 hours trying to figure out a table and still not be good at it.

The fewest variables you have to use from table to table the more consistent you are going to be which is why pros will tell you to bank firm as it lessens all the other variables.

If the table is a half diamond off, then there is probably something seriously flawed with that entire setup.
