There is no question at all that A10 is the better hand of the two. It is fact.

As far as opinions go - its a toss up. I like both, they both play really well when used accordingly - IE: don't go opening A10o from UTG at a 9 handed table...this is generally unprofitable and will lead to more losses than victories.

I like this question. I never thought about it before, but I think I play KQ suited or not more often than I play my A 10s. Even KJ seems more attractive to me lately. I know the odds are better preflop with A 10, but it's almost like the JJ thing for me..
It does tend to depend on the recent hands though. I follow those like a crazed roulette player lol

I would play them both of course, I just feel a little bit more secure with KQ because more outs to make straight but its just internal feeling. Have to play them both :)

I feel way better with A10, I find it interesting how many prefer KQ.

I really don't like AT, I think I already lost a lot of chips with that hand, so I prefer KQ. But there are two big hands to play before the flop.

Hello, the All CardsChat Community! By my opinion, AT is better, than KQ by one simple cause,
because any card with Ace have more chances win against King with any card.:rolleyes:

I've looked hard at all the responses so I will go with the Majority and say A 10.

Thankyou everybody

Heads up I want the Ace ten.

Against a random set of hands, I'll take the KQ.

I win with KQ more because I play it more aggressive than I do A 10.

Huuum, tought question...

I guess the two are kinda of even, but I find it prettier a suited KQ, althougt the best chance for making a straight may not compensate the odds.

Personally AT is a better hand than KQ with AT I would play 50% of my bank with KQ I would just call.

I think that KQ is a better hand because you have a better chance of getting a straight.

Odds say AT. Gotta go with the odds. Ace high wins more hands than K high, think about it.

The best is KQ because at the end or you can connect a straight or a double pair because they are the ones that come out the most on the table

I will take KQ all day and twice on Sunday even though its marginally the worse of the two hands. I have never been a fan of AT personally.

Guys, Good afternoon!

Would you like to know the best hand to play?

Although one has more strength preflop.

The other one plays better post flop.

Which do you prefer?

Which one is really the best?
It depends on the flop

KQs,KQo vs random range: 61.94% equity
ATs,ATo vs random range: 63.19% equity

So overall, AT fares better against a random range
