Go for broke – 豁出去了!

Go for broke – 豁出去了!

又是Zimbabwe,又是前教育部長Moyo的新聞。上星期才說過。但有些俚語的確需要知道,比如go for broke.

《紐約時報》這樣說:

And so, Moyo, shortly after expressing his growing frustrations to his friend, appeared to go for broke. 所以,Moyo在向朋友表達了自己的不滿之後,決定孤注一擲。

對,go for broke就是“孤注一擲”,“全力以赴”,“豁出去了”的意思。英文解釋是:risk everything in an all-out effort.

以前是一個賭博用語,後來成爲俗語。

例句:

  • I’m going for broke on this hand. 這次我準備把賭注都壓上去。
  • Do it man, go for broke. 別猶豫了,上!
  • The runner went for broke at the end of the race. 賽跑運動員在最後衝刺時竭盡全力。
  • Sometimes you need to know when to go for broke and when to compromise. 有時你應該學會什麽時候該不依不饒,什麽時候該讓步。

很多時候go for broke和go for it可替換使用。
