The Gator Roll is a last-ditch effort before the referee calls matte (stop). If you're looking for a quick and easy way to open up your opponent and stay on the ground then this is a good option.

This version of Sankaku is great when the clock is running out or when your opponent is really defensive and you can't get them to roll with anything else.

Sometimes in judo when you're going for a regular Sankaku from turtle, your partner knows where you're going to roll so you have to change it up and roll the other direction.
