Make sure ya go to the same guy when ya win a big one.
Then duke everybody in the place a C-Note.
That's funny. I was reading your message and when I got to "Then duke everybody in the place" I was thinking, man ridge is majorly feisty right now. He's going to knock everybody out even though he won. And then I finished reading your sentence, which puts it in a different perspective.
Where I grew up, New York City, and probably several other places, maybe from Chicago to Philly and everything north of that, to duke somebody means to take a swing at them and knock them out, like your original "so many lefts he'd be begging for a right" gem, which still has me laughing, by the way.
But I had never heard of duking somebody to mean to comp them cash. If you say you're going to duke somebody in Brooklyn, it's going to turn into a Scorcese film in a hurry.
But absolutely, comping, I mean duking them all except him would be pretty amusing.
