'Pulling a Levante' is by definition placing all your egss in one basket and gambling everything on a sure bet, only for it not to turn out in a positive fashion. Made popular by a recent Spanish football match between Real Madrid and 'Levante' in which Levante were expected to lose heavily but acheived a creditable draw. Many individuals had placed high value bets on a Madrid win and lost it all.
