The exact meaning of partner’s overcall will depend on both the strength of the opponents’ opening bid and on your agreed partnership methods.

These matters were discussed in the section on overcaller’s first bid.

All that matters at this point is to recognize the method and the style which applies in the present situation, and then to respond honestly according to the partnership agreement.
