Troll 4 life.

hey guys, Im sorry to make a new thread but I wanted to turn to the nice people of bullshido in regards to a guard pass I have seen marcelo garcia perform on youtube.
I can't seem to find it again to look for greater detail, and I was wondering whether it is a successful guard pass or merely crapple.
description of the guard pass:
you start in your opponent's closed guard.
you begin to press his arms against the mat using bicep control, making a cross shape
you choose an arm, let's say the left arm, and abandon bicep control for wrist control
you stand up and put the wrist you're holding behind his back, abandon bicep control on you right arm and go for the wrist you're holding with your left hand.
right now you are holding his right wrist with your right hand, leaving your left hand to work on pressing down on his right knee to transfer to side control.
now, at SOME point I might have fucked up with your and your opponent's lefts and rights, I tried to fix it but I'm not sure, so bear with me. At SOME point you go back to your knees to trap his trapped arm under both your weights.
you should be facing the free arm in side control and your opponent should have a trapped arm behind his back.
now, I can't find this video, and I haven't been able to pull this off during rolling. However, I haven't attempted it much
any feedback on whether this is a good guard pass will be greatly appreciated.

One of the blues at my academy uses this one pretty regularly, at least on me.

thank you, I couldn't find it. (saves on facebook)
does anyone have any more guard passes to discuss that they're not sure of their success rate?

The marcelo garcia one is the one I was looking for. The only thing is if when you are passing you have to control the opp. side hip. If you don't the guy could go for an omaplata.
