beat through cleverness and wit;
"I beat the traffic"
"She outfoxed her competitors"
defeat by more skillful maneuvering;
"The English troops outmaneuvered the Germans"
"My new supervisor knows how to outmaneuver the boss in most situations"
- We outsmarted them and got there first by taking a shorter route.
- outsmart oneself 聪明反被聪明误...
