: What is the meaning of "run the table"? or "run the whole table?"

I know the term from the game of pool aka "pocket billiards".
You "run the table" when you successfully sink every ball on the table thereby giving you control on the next round or "rack up".
I hear the term used in other sports to describe one team having a good day of scoring.
