I'll open another can of worms with this one..or will I be accused of beating another dead horse?.....Worms, Horses, who cares..here we go.
At the Summit this year, after I mentioned the word pass, it was clear that the BOD were in agreement that the word be accepted, yet it was not voted in? Another annoying revolation was the word complete was accepted?    Pass-NO.......Complete-Yes ???

I don't like pass because it has a grey area. When facing a bet it is a fold. When NOT facing a bet it is a check. Lots of trouble can arise from these differences.
I pray that complete is used for limit only...

ROBERTS RULES……..BETTING AND RAISING
10. Rapping the table with your hand is a pass…..PLEASE NOT THE WORD PASS, NOT CHECK.

These are taken from different sections of ROBERTS RULES

                  DRAW POKER
 
10. Rapping the table in turn constitutes either a pass or the declaration of a pat hand that does not want to draw any cards, depending on the situation. A player who indicates a pat hand by rapping the table, not knowing the pot has been raised, may still play his or her hand.

                  LOW BALL
 
14. Rapping the table in turn constitutes either a pass or the declaration of a pat hand that does not want to draw any cards, depending on the situation

                         ROBERTS RULES GLOSSARY

 PASS: (1) Decline to bet. In a pass-and-out game, this differs from a check, because a player who passes must fold. (2) Decline to call a wager, at which point you must discard your hand and have no further interest in the pot.

The word "complete" does not stand alone and is for limit poker only ???
