Feed your right arm under the opponent’s head, from your right to left, at the other side grip your own left biceps, or grab your shirt if you can’t reach through enough, and feed the left arm over the opponent’s throat, making sure that the bone of the wrist is laying over his wind pipe and grab your own right biceps/shoulder (or grip the sleeve). Squeeze tightly to finish the hold. If you need more leverage go onto the balls of your feet and focus your weight onto the hold, if you need to you can also jump to a jackknife position.
