    Default "More than good enough" vs "good enough"

    I wanted to know the difference between "more than good enough" and "good enough", "more than good enough" is an idiomatic english as I sometimes see this phrase in the web?

    What's the difference between having enough money and having more than enough money?

    Can we say "more than enough" instead of "more than good enough"?

    No. I am trying to point you to the key word here, which is "more."

    Something that is "good enough" is suitable for your needs. A Fiat or a Kia is "good enough" as a source of transportation. A BMW or a Mercedes is "more than good enough" to get you around town.

    A hamburger is "good enough" to stop you from being hungry. A think, juicy steak is "more than good enough."
