Default Small Straight

Guy infront of me raises my cards are 56 of spades

I call hoping to catch a good flop

Flop comes out

7s 8s 9h

Guy bets big again. Here I got the straight and the straight flush draw I cant get away from it, but it costs me a lot of money my opponent had the higher straight and also the same straight flush draw (except the 4s was my only out)

He had J10 spades, which I had put him on j10 just couldnt put him on the spades.

You think this should have been an easy fold?

No, it would not have been an easy fold.

However, I'm not sure I would have even entered the pot with 56s when the person ahead of me raised. Suited connectors are strong cards, but their power diminishes as the numbers get smaller. When facing a strong raise with low suited connectors, I would probably fold.
Just my $.02/$.04
