Monson Choke from North South
Pay careful attention to his setup. If you get good at the transition from sidemount to north south, this choke is very high percentage.
One of the most important parts of this technique is to sit your weight back and off of him. Drive your hips and chest away from your opponent and onto the ground. If his body is holding your weight, you can’t drop your weight into his neck.
