Even then, the high guard will help you control posture and keep the crook in the arm a lot easier.
Also, This could set up a Gogoplata Am i right?
Yeah. Single arm control can be a set up for the armbar, triangle, omoplata and gogoplata. The gogo is mostly for if they choose the stack.

Pulling the arm down(Tricept), and Shrimping, and pulling leg over?
Yeah, it mostly about establishing a 90 degree angle to your opponents body to break the balance, which gives great control of the posture to finish the armbar without having to worry about getting stacked.
