Why you level silence first and open with it, 3s silence is fun. Irelia is really the only "difficult" Cho lane, and only in the sense she can sustain so well kills won't happen without gank. Also, as top you can go all out movement (quits,0/21/9) and get away fairly easily. Nasus is the only real problem, and that is late game. Teemo? No health, 2-4 silences then a combo and he's done, a joke. No one can really, "poke him down", especially if they are a mana user. That is as top, jungle cho is a force and mid cho can be.... scary. Only hate Xerath and the new champ really mid lane.
