DEPO - An acronym Double Even, Pass Odd, used to indicate Aces or keycards when an opponent has interfered with a slam-asking sequence as Gerber or Blackwood.  DEPO is more frequently used at the 6-level to show Kings; while DEPO has less accuracy than DOPI since it only show a specific count, DEPO takes up less of the valuable bidding space.
