WWYD if you need 2
You are the pocket near the 1ball.

Load up the cue ball with bottom right and spin bank that 7. If that doesn't look right kick it from the side rail back over to your side.

Yes, indeed, Mr. Cat. It's not realistic to think I can make it, but I believe I can two-rail it over by the 1 ball with Jojo back up by the top rail. From there I have to like my position.

All I see is a safe shot. Crossbank the 7 and get the cueball back up table, along the tangent line as close to the back rail as possible. You'd be lucky to get the 7 more than halfway to your side as you have to prioritize a good enough hit with no spin. Battle from there.

i would 3 rail the 7 here with high right.

ticky the ten behind the one into the pocket and win the game. those are big pockets.

for the faint of heart cross over the 7 and knock it up the rail and leave the cue ball in the center of short rail

This is one of two options I see, albeit it requires perfect execution to get a full-ball hit on the 7 and get the CB back up table and out of the danger zone. If you happen to leave a cross bank, it certainly wouldn't come free.

There's a shot that often comes up in 3-Cushion Billiards that would work here: A rail-first kick at the 7 with a high-left CB.

Looking at the second picture. And seeing the pocket size, I'd probably play the 10-1 carom and bring the cue ball naturally behind that 7. All cue ball here.

I would attempt kicking the 7 ball. Short rail first in attempt to kick-bank the 7 over to near your side pocket with the CB caroming back up to its original position near the top left corner pocket. Keeps your 1 ball hidden and removes the 7 from opponents side. Not too difficult to execute.
