Based on my research it means to turn something upside down. Post the entire sentence for context.

Here's the sentence:
"Kayang-kaya ring pataubin ng nanay mo ang gabundok mang labahin."
 
The sentence is from a story.

Roor verb is "taob" means to flip over. The sentence used it as colloquialism. May also use to mean: defeat soundly, win against considerably, slay, etc.

@AMBoy translation:
 
Mom killed the mountain-sized laundry.
 
Mom did a real exceptional job washing (implied) that really huge laundry.

Literally, it means to put something upside down
 
However, it is used to mean "to upset someone - usually in a game/match".
 
E.g. Pinataob ng Gilas ang Korea sa FIBA - Gilas upset Korea in FIBA

@Bituingmaykinang Is 'taob' commonly used with that meaning?
