When both balls are close to the long rail like the shots you refer to,
I find the plus two system to be more accurate thatn the corner system.
So I am really using the plus two modified for hitting the first rail
and then travelling to a point on the second rail. I usually don't use
systems, but in practice on those tables, I was having a hard time
adjusting, and found that the system worked perfectly for me so I used
it! That was the only system I used in the tournament except on bank
shots (3 cushions first).
When you get to Chicago, I can show you the system, it is very nice.
