idiomatic expressions

Would you be so kind as to explain what "fait une tete de plus que Marie" and "a gagne haut la main" mean.  I tried to look them up but to no avail.  I think I understand them in context, but would like a bit better understanding.  Thank you!!  I did try to click on the phrases in question but nothing appeared; it would be helpful if, once the test were completed, that mechanism worked on the dictees as well.  Is that possible to fix???

Il a une tête de plus que Marie. -- He is one head taller than Marie.
Gagner haut la main. -- to win hands down. (Notice that in French you win "hands up").
