Silverado

You can see some of these in Bravo's books, but they are a lot easier to get through video. Seen the Silverado, but never really caught on to the Filho. Pretty sweet.
 
Anybody use that Silverado frequently? I remember seeing it in MTRG, but never remembered to try it out. I would think the guy could come up to his knees and stack you while you're messing around with the arms. What do you guys that use it think?
 
I don't get how the Filho breaks the grip. You are setting up your figure four on the far arm, not the arm you are trying to armbar. How is leaning back with the far arm gripped going to break it? It works in the vid because the guy on bottom lets go, but I don't see a grip break there.

it changes the angle at which your opponent's hands meet. By getting his arms out of the same plane, his hands have less grip strength. I used to use a grip break that worked along the same principles, where I would pull on the far tricep to straighten his far arm. once his arms are parallel to each other, he has considerably less strength to hold them together
