    It really means that a sucker got lucky to beat a far superior hand. So more or less what the previous guy said. Most people think the luck factor is far greater than it really is. A good player will pound a “lucky sucker” in the long run.

    To suck out is to catch a lucky draw in a hand you probably shouldn’t have be playing in the first place.

    It actually means that you got beaten by a very lucky card on the river. Most happens when there is about a 5% or less chance of winning.
