Two-zero (two-oh; 2-0)

Playing deep into Round 2, having won Round 1, with the perceived or actual intent to win in two rounds.

If a player wins Round 1 and continues to play Round 2 instead of dry-passing, the player can either bleed their opponent or attempt to two-zero them. A player two-zeroes their opponent when they have won the second Round as well as the first, and the third round is thus not played. Two-zeroing can be a viable strategy if a player either has card advantage or if their hand can generate more value than their opponent’s hand. Two-zeroing the opponent is also referred to as "two-oh’ing," "two-rounding," or, more colloquially, "denying dailies."
