Here is what I think it looks like in VP. I can't get exactly the same view of the table, but this is close. Let me know if there is any wrong placement of balls and I can fix it and post other views.

Here is another try on matching the screen shot. Do the balls look like they're in the right places?nice pic bob
if you could remove the cuestick
i think it could be misleading regarding shot selection since we dont know what shane shot yet
also the table seems alittle "squewed" (sp) and the screenshot is fairly square
IMO, the 2 needs to come off the rail more. Your pic looks like the 6 goes all day long, in Larry's pic, it's close...
Im crossing the 11 ball using 1 tip of inside spin. The cue ball will either hit the 14 or move past it and go up to the top rail. If I don't hit the 14 ball Im comfortable with him shooting at a with all the balls on my side. K
It's also close in mine to the extent that I probably wouldn't shoot it. Here's the overheadIMO, the 2 needs to come off the rail more. Your pic looks like the 6 goes all day long, in Larry's pic, it's close...
edit: on 2nd look, icbw
The views are of the same layout. That's a problem with 2-D views. Angles/clearances are deceptive. It is very difficult to tell exactly what Shane was facing from the single screen capture. Half an inch on a ball can make a huge difference at this game. Also, there is a question of whether the 8 fits to Gentile's pocket.In the original pic, the 6 seems a big 'maybe' to go. In BobJ's overhead it seems absolutely clear - but the following rail-level view seems so different I can hardly believe the balls are in the same positions.
My shot would be as Whitey has already stated: send the 6 to the pocket - playing the CB to sit on the 3&10.
This would be my shot also in this situation , although I think I would shoot the best speed for accuracy, I think I will get a cut shot at either the 3 ball or a bank on the 13.I am shooting the 8 with some pace, cb will drive into the 15 banking the 13 to my side and the 3 ball will be brakes for the cb keeping it low.
