Can someone direct me to a good explanation,with graphics, of the so called Diamond system for lining up bank shots?

Here's another link as well.

Also the first article linked says no English, I've always seen it with running English like the second article uses.

I use the system far more often to hit a ball near the third rail. See:

Scroll down to basic diamond system.

The page also has some other systems as well.

You probably mean the "Corner-5" system, since it is often referred to as "the" diamond system. There are hundreds of other systems. One simple explanation with crude graphics is available in the FAQ that was made for RSB. See item number 6 in the document http://www.sfbilliards.com/faq.html

Some of the stuff at EasyPoolTutor needs to be revised. I think Jim Loy's site is better, and he has some other systems there as well.

If you want good explanations of several diamond systems, look in the second half of Byrne's "New Standard Book of Pool &amp; Billiards." (The old version will work too, since it is the same for that part.)

There are also several systems described in the Billiards Digest article at http://www.sfbilliards.com/articles/1999-12.pdf including the corner-5 for pool tables.

The most commonly-used "Diamond System" is described and illustrated (with examples) in TP 7.2 (http://billiards.colostate.edu/technical_proofs/TP_7-2.pdf).
