      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is CO with J, 9.
      Hero raises to $0.75, BU folds, SB calls $0.65, BB folds.

      Flop: ($1.75) K, T, 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $1.00, SB raises to $2.50, Hero calls $1.50.

      Turn: ($6.75) 8 (2 players)
      SB bets $4.25, Hero calls $4.25.

      River: ($15.25) 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $5.50, Hero folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $15.25.

      Do you think I have enough implied odds to call his bet on the turn? Villain was a random regular.

      you can´t raise river on paired board. I would prefer fold on the turn, since you don´t hit enough times or if you hit J or 9 then you should sometimes also call, especially with J. Better just to avoid away these situations on paired boards
      Other option would be raise turn, since that would likely make b/f his Tx hands and also maybe QJ or even Kx. but that play is also quite risky and you should know your opponent that he´d c/r flop small and bet turn with draw or one pair hand
