One key picture I see missing is the actual roll. I almost think Nog left this one out on purpose.
When you lock on the choke you want to dive your head inside and underneath your opponent as much as possible. Sometimes I see people just rest their head against the guys back and roll. What ends up happening is they get their face smashed, and loosen the choke somewhat struggling to get them over off your face.
The second key point is to keep turning like all hell. Sometimes you rotate so you face them when you are both on your side. Lock up a leg in a sort of half guard to limit the guy from being able to move around. If they have their legs free and can squirm they can release some pressure by rolling.
This is a slow choke. All arm triangles can be 'fought' a little bit since you are really only shutting down one side of the neck hard. Ideally you clamp it on so tight that their other arm is helping the choke. But as theory and practice are often different you might need to hold this choke for a while. You might start thinking, this isnt working and let go. Mistake.

So you basically "dive" under the guys body in direction of your opposite side, as fast and as deep as possible, right?

On a side note, one of our guys uses this choke all the time. Won his division at GQ with it and got it at his first tournament in AZ last year. He was only 16 at the time and a yellow belt. He won the teen division so we put him in the adult division. So funny....there was a purple belt wrestler who shot in and took him down a couple of times. He finally landed this choke and tapped the guy out in the finals. It was very awesome indeed.
Mostly, I just sit here. Mostly.

I love this technique.
For me, this technique is great to work in with a guilotine. Get a guy pummeled down and start workign to get around his neck or grab his gi, he wants to get his hands in to break that choke up. All of a sudden my hand is working to get up under his arm pit rather than under his chin, he thinks it's fine, then- weeeeee. If nothing else a takedown.
Sometimes the choke is it's shown in that picture there just doesn't sink for me. Switch up the grip, keep spinning on him, get to mount and viola, mounted guilotine ^_^

If the changes they made to the gator roll are any sign, they will turn it into a kneebar and win the Pride GP with it.

You're just upset that BJJ invented grappling.
