    Question "I'm going to smoke you"

    Hello,

    I heard one of the characters in a TV serial say "I'm going to smoke you" while they are playing poker.
    Could you please tell me what it means? If you need the context or the background, please let me know.

    Thank you

    "Smoke you" is sometimes used to mean "kill you". In a poker game, I assume the speaker meant "beat your hand".
