Correct PSU cables for 2080ti? Pig Tail cables.

I have an MSI 2080ti Trio which needs x2 8 pin AND a 6 pin.

I have just purchased a Corsair 850x PSU with x3 pig tailed 8 pin PCI-E cables. (meaning one side of the cable is normal 8 pin and the other has 8 pin AND another 8 pin of the back of that)

My question is can I effectively use one of these cables to daisy chain the two 8 pins? Meaning I'd only use two cables from the PSU to power the 3 sets of pins on my GPU.

The power draw of the card is quoted 300w.
