Rorion at one time told me this, once you have the choke, hug them like you love them, with a big breath in.
Works like a charm every time. :)

Just to add, before I used that thinking of the hug for a RNC, I would do the common mistakes. Use too much arm strength, try to crank their neck, hold my breath.
Hug them and breathe deeply in and out.

Too bad I already said that over a week ago

You need to put your right hand on your left shoulder. Do the technique without the opponent and notice the size of the hole you create. If you move your hand from your bicep to your shoulder then the hole becomes smaller. If you push your chest out, shoulders back the hole becomes smaller which is what you want.

Thanks for all the great advice, guys. The "puffing my chest out" thing has made a huge difference.

If the above does not work, try setting your right palm on your left bicept so your pinky is in the crook of your elbow. Then, take your left hand and set it (palm down) on the front of your right delt. Then slide your left palm down your right bicept (palm down) as far as possible. Then breath in, arch back, and bring your elbows together.
