Choke I haven't personally try it ever but I guess it's reversed from unchoke. Which about unchoke, read below:
I've got a example what it does, and what does it mean to me: (correct me if I was wrong)
Unchoke: when you in a seeding status, for example, you have got 5 peers leech from you. And in a active swarm, peers will always exchange and rearange between seeders, not staying for too long... but for some certain (or uncertain) reason, you want to stick with those peers even it's not optimized peers (not even matter to your file/content anymore, coz you're seeding in this example), then force unchoke those given peers and they likely stay with you until they're finish 100% torrent or they disconnect by themselves.
Practical purpose (for me, IMO): Unchoke may help you keep seeding for a certain group of peers when you're not in the top fast upload peers (seeders) list, prevent them completely leaving you and come to faster seeders. Only use for seeding purpose at this example.
