Arm Bar stack defense

I am ill, but I still need a fix. I went to class and we had some hardcore cardio culminating in 3 delicious rounds of everyone's favorite...bug in a rug.

When you have an armbar from your guard, your mean opponent will sometimes stack you. By sometimes I mean always. If you have his right arm, then he stacks you, you take your right hand and post it on the outside of his right knee. You then follow your hand with your head and roll out finishing on the side of your opponent, still with the armbar.

The key with any armbar is your legs, and this variation is no different. you have to curl your legs against his back/head to keep him from escaping by jumping around you. If he just rolls, you just let him and do a traditional armbar.
