I play top, jungle, ADC, and support a lot. Not a whole lot of mid. I will say that I prefer top, and had the opportunity to do so recently. Unfortunately, I picked second, and was counter-picked by the enemy team.
Jax is my preferred top, and the enemy chose Olaf. I've always had trouble with Olaf, as many people do as Jax, because of his anti-CC, slow, and strong sustain on top of the consistent true damage. I played defensively and managed to keep from losing my lane, but went on to lose the game anyway.
My question is how can a Jax outplay an Olaf? Are there any tactics for out-poking his Undertow and Reckless Swing at levels 2 and 3? How can I aggressively zone Olaf as Jax?
