Kokish Relay - An refinement to opener's responses after a strong 2C opener.  A rebid of 2H by opener after two clubs and responder's 2D waiting bid shows one of two types of hands; responder is forced to "puppet" to 2S, allowing opener to provide a further description:

 

2C - 2D;
2H - 2S;

The 2H - 2S bidding is an artificial forcing sequence, with the following opener rebids:

 

1.

2C - 2D;
2H - 2S;
2N

An extra strong balanced hand, usually 25+ points (too strong for a traditional 2 Notrump rebid).

2.

2C - 2D;
2H - 2S;
2/3x

Shows Hearts -- some play a 2H followed by 3H rebid as invitational while others play a jump 3H after responder's 2D is invitational (slow shows, fast denies).
