    As long as your elbows are positioned properly on the opponents chest you shouldn't have a problem being armbarred.

    I've used this technique for years.

    Hence the name.......

    So I have had this done a few times to me and I just end up putting my forhead on my knee and blocking the crank. And since I am all balled up I roll over a shoulder and finish the triangle from on my side.

    I know this thread is pretty old, but I've been trying a variation of this where instead of sprawling back you sit back like you want to do the knee-through-the-middle guard break. It's easier to get the kneebar when they open the triangle since you're not sprawled out.

    Now, that said, I still haven't hit this reliably. Most of the people who get triangles on me are much better than I am and don't let the stack/can-opener happen.

    Seems to me like it would work better for big guys and low percentage. I agree use it before it is totally locked in, but I'll try out grabbing higher on the head. If his head is bent, more strain on the spine, can't effectively squeeze legs unless he has good spinal/back flexibilty.

    Technique wise it may not be best to use it all the time on smaller guys as that may inhibit your progress against bigger guys, but in a fight against a smaller guy its not about winning with good technique, its about winning. So its not worthless.
