Here's a not so unique position.

WWYD here to get out?

Your pocket to the right of the 2 ball.

I certainly wouldn't try a low percentage kick shot or an off the wall trick shot of any type. I would keep it simple. I would thin the 2-ball on the right side. It is difficult to judge from the photo if it is possible to strike the point on the left side of the side pocket thereby keeping it once again very near to the side pocket. However, if that is not a viable option then I would make the 2-ball (which would be spotted after my shot) in the side pocket and bring the cue ball toward my opponent's pocket, hopefully frozen on the short rail. A third option, would be to slowly come off the left side of the 2-ball with the cue ball while attempting to keep both the cue ball and 2-ball as close together as possible near the side pocket.

Nothing fancy here. I would simply pot the 2 in the middle bag and try to leave the CB close to the opponent’s pocket, preferably frozen to the bottom rail. By playing cushion first with right english to pot the 2 I could either sink the CB in the middle or leave a cross bank on the 2.

The question is WWYD to get out, not WWYD?

Cut it straight down the rail.

I wouldn’t shoot it in a million years but since shooting is the imperative here... and I know how well 3C cuts balls...

He may cut em pretty good, but his forte is spinning the cb, so while I would never attempt it, the obvious shot for 3c is to spin off the long rail into the 2 ball sending it down the rail.

I probably have just as much chance as kicking at it from the head rail and then contacting the long rail right before the 2 and pushing it down towards my pocket, hopefully making it.
