Partner opened with an artificial strong bid
Your next action will depend primarily on two things:-
whether partner’s hand is balanced or unbalanced;
whether the auction is non-forcing, forcing, or game-forcing.
There will also be specific continuations if partner’s rebid was also artificial such as a Kokish 2♥ or 3NT.
The continuations are considered separately in the categories:-
partner opened with a one-round force
partner opened with a two-round force
partner opened with a game-forcing bid
