Probably would make the 8 and stun behind the 15 or, if it looks good from the table, go off the long rail and freeze behind the 15.
You probably didn't notice but I semi-cheated by removing "stun" when I quoted. I think it takes a little bit of 8 o'clock.Doesn't look like you can stun the 8 and get behind the 15 (looks like its too much of a cut) but hard to tell with just a picture.
I would shoot a similar shot to yours Tom, only I'd use 10:00 English and make sure I hit the 13 with the 15 ball bank. I'd shoot it pretty hard also and catch the back side of the 8 coming off the side rail and move it over also. The CB should move up table and the 13 & 15 ball should get repositioned in a much more favorable place than they are now.I would be looking to bank the fifteen into the thirteen and draw with heavy spin into the eight to kill the cue ball near the side rail.
Something like this....
I don't see how this is possible, the 8 moved about 3 feet... Not possible....santos did bank the 15 into the one
he came off the 8 back into the side rail above the side pocket and spun the cue ball 4 rails for the safety
by the speed and spin of the cue ball there is no doubt that was what he was shooting
approximation of the path and the end result how he left it for cliff

I'm on my cell phone last paragraph is correct JeffI don't see how this is possible, the 8 moved about 3 feet... Not possible....
Something is definitely wrong here, no way is he running into the back of that 8 ball and going back to the rail with the CB and spinning around the world and the 8 only moves 3 feet....:sorry Larry but that defies all logic.
Only way I can see the balls ending up like they are is he might have super thinned the 8 going in before the rail, then caught the rail with a ton of RHE to spin around the table.
i think you are as always right...He was trying to avoid contact with the 8, go behind it, he almost did it...
He got a little lucky with that thin brush on the 8 huh Larry, if he hits it a little thicker, he sells the farm. Quite impressive shot selection, but then he was privy to the amount of separation between the 15 and the 8 ball, something we could not judge accurately from the camera angle in the pic. Good WWYD...
