    head/arm choke i think is always a good option for bigger guys.

    as someone with long and, with gi, I always liked cross collar choke, easier to reach the cross grip and setup.

    I was going to say Triangle, as a more stumpy guy I've found them tricky. And been wary of taller guys getting me with them; happened a bit too often against longer legged guys in comparison with other subs.

    When you say tall, do you mean

    A) Long legs
    B) Long body
    C) Big so long and large

    Long limbs mean it's easier to get poor quality lock ups like triangles, kimura grips etc, so if that's what you like concentrate on getting them technically solid.

    I'm a big fan of using the extra range to control space from underneath, and use the extra lever length to work sweeps to top, take the back and RNC, but the extra length makes the RNC harder to sink in fully, but the bow and arrow is nice if you have problems on the way in.

    Got a guy in my group who is probably same height as you but a lot thicker. I literally cant pass his guard, and his scissor sweep is like 2 trees swinging at me
