Passing a round without playing a card.
In Gwent, the only reasonable moment for a player to dry-pass is in Round 2 after they have won the first round. Players typically dry-pass to ensure that their opponent must play one more card than them during this round. The other options are bleeding the opponent or two-zeroing them. A dry pass is sometimes also referred to as an "open pass."
