Saw the split, as Stan suggested. Joint the edges (square and true), re-glue. Pocket screws not neccessary, as a proper glue joint is plenty strong.

Block plane is like bringing a knife to a gunfight. Need a jack or fore plane at minimum to push across that piece. So maybe several grits on the sander if that’s what you’ve got.

Can’t hurt it, right?

Just try to keep removals even. Use a straight edge across the top to check for flat as you go.
