suck out
 v. phr.— «Frymer also had a distinction that he never experienced before at the World Series: He was the one who knocked out someone head-to-head, or as he called it, “sucked out” the opponent. “In the early rounds, whenever anyone went all in, the (ESPN) cameras were there and rolling,” Frymer said. “I went all in on this one guy and the cameras came over to film. When I won the hand, I got so excited, and I never get excited. But I figured it was the first time in 11 years that I sucked out someone. Every time, I’m usually the one who gets knocked out.”» —“All in the cards” by Jim Hague Bergen Reporter (N.J.) July 31, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
