The highest unpaired card that will play into a 5 card hand of 4 of a kind, three of a kind, 2 pair, 1 pair and high card. For example in holdem two players each have a pair of aces. If neither player paired their other card this card could determine the winner. AK would beat any other ace that did not two pair. Sometimes no kickers play.

There was a definitive chance that he was bluffing, and even if he wasn't, I still had 3 outs to pair my kicker and take down the pot."
The highest extra card in your hand that doesn't participate in a straight or flush. The kicker does not contribute to the strength of your hand except by itself. For example, if you hold KK953, you have a pair of kings with a nine kicker. Five-card hands, such as straights, flushes and full houses, have no kickers. In games with community cards, kickers are especially important, because it's easy for two players to make similar hands. For instance, if you are holding A9 and someone else holds A8, and the flop is AK642, you have your opponent out-kicked. Your hand is AAK96, while theirs is AAK86.

This high card is known as a player's "kicker." In Texas Hold 'Em, opponents often end up with the same pair, each using one of their hole cards. Their other hole card will be referred to as their "kicker" and the value of this card will often determine who wins the hand.
The next highest card used to determine the winner between similar hands. (e.g. a flush that has AK742 vs. a flush that has AK965, the 7 and the 9 between both hands is the kicker).
the 'next' card counted to decide who wins a hand eg two players hold AK and A8 with a AA679 board - AK wins as the King kicker is higher than the 8 kicker
In poker the strongest card that is not a part of any sequence
In Draw Poker, an odd high card that doesn't help the straight or flush that a player has

The card that breaks a tie when two players have the same hand.
In Poker when two players have equal hands, and these hands are not composed of all 5 cards, the highest remaining card that is not used to make the hand is called a Kicker. The Kicker acts as a tie-breaker between otherwise equal hands. For Example: You Hold: A(C) K(H) Your opponent holds: A(H) 9(S) The flop comes: A(D) 7(S) 7(C) The turn comes: 4(C) The River comes: 3(S) You and your opponent both hold 2 pair- As and 7s, however if you look at the 5-card hand you each hold: Yours: A(C) A(D) 7(S) 7(C) K(H) Opponents: A(H) A (D) 7(S) 7(C) 9(S) In this situation, your K Kicker would break the tie and cause you to win the hand. HOWEVER, this only applies to the 5 card hand in play; using the same example as above, if you held a 2(H) instead of your K, and your opponent held a 3(C) instead of his 9, the pot would be split as your kicker would not play; Your 5 card hands would become: Yours: A(C) A(D) 7(S) 7(C) 4(C) Opponents: A(H) A (D) 7(S) 7(C) 4(C) In this situation you have equal 5 card hands, and the Kicker doesn't play, so the pot would be split.
A card that is not paired up, but is used to make a hand. Example; A person with two pair, K K 5 5 9, has two pair Kings & Fives with a Nine Kicker. If two people had the same two pair the Kicker would be used to determine the winner.
The highest extra card in your hand that doesn't participate in a straight or flush. The card does not contribute to the strength of your hand except by itself. For example, if you hold QQ943, you have a pair of queens with a nine kicker. Five-card hands (straights, flushes, and full houses) don't have kickers. In games with community cards, kickers are especially important, because it's easy for two players to make similar hands. For example, if you hold A8 and someone else holds A7, and the flop is AK642, you have your opponent out-kicked. Your hand is AAK86 while theirs is AAK76.
An unpaired card used to determine the better of two near-equivalent hands. For instance, suppose you have AK and your opponent has AQ. If the board reads AT742 you both have a pair of aces, but you have a king kicker and would win the pot.
Two meanings. 1) A single card kept along with a pair, in Draw, in an attempt to make two pair. For example, someone might keep 3-3-K, drawing two cards, in the hope that he might get either a three (for trips) or a King (making two pair, Kings-up). 2) The highest single card held by two players in Hold'em who each hold the same pair. For example, if the board in Hold'em is A-10-8-5-2, and Player One holds A-J as his hand, and Player Two holds A-Q, each player has a pair of Aces, but Player Two has a better kicker and would win the hand.
a card that accompanies a made hand of fewer than five cards. Usually the card of highest rank not used to complete the made hand. The rank of the kicker determines the winner of the hand. If you hold A-K and your opponent holds A-Q and the board reads T-7-A-J-2, you win with a pair of aces, king kicker (your hand is A-A-K-J-T versus your opponent's A-A-Q-J-T). In other words, you have your opponent "outkicked."
The high card that goes with a pair or two pair.
If a player makes a pair with one of his hole cards, the other is called the kicker. If another players holds the same pair, the highest kicker wins the pot.
A side, unpaired card. In hold'em, your kicker players in many situations. So if you have A9, your opponent has AK, and the board is A-7-5-3-2, the player with AK would win because he has a higher kicker and can make the better five card poker hand (A-A-K-7-5 compared to A-A-9-7-5).
The highest unpaired card that helps determine the value of a five-card poker hand.

Kicker is a card that is "just there" and it can make your hand stronger or weaker whenyour going against others.
the highest “other” card in a poker hand, used to determine a winner in the case of a draw. Example: a player holding an ace and a king will beat a player holding an ace and a jack if the board shows another ace. The king kicker (A-A-K) beats the jack kicker (A-A-J)
The card used to differentiate between two seemingly tied hands, e.g. On a board of Q T J J 4 where one player has AQ and one KQ. Player 1 wins with two pairs queens and jacks with an ace kicker.
A kicker is the highest card that is unrelated to the type of poker hand one has. For example, someone with the hand AKKQ54 has a pair of kings with an ace kicker. Kickers are used to break ties. For example, if someone else had KKJ65, that person would have a pair of kings with jack kicker. The person with a pair of kings with ace kicker would beat the person with a jack kicker. If two people have the same type of hand with the same type of kicker, the next highest kicker is used. For example, in a matchup between AKKJ5 versus AKKJ4, the person with AKKJ5 would win.
An unpaired card that is used to determine who has the better hand. Ie. I had AJ but he had AK. Even though we both hit a pair of aces on the river, he wins with the higher kicker.
In a tie hand between one pair, two pair, or three-of-a-kind, the remaining card(s) that make up the hand. The player with the highest card(s) wins.
The highest card that does not take part in a straight or flush. I.e. in a hand of three kings, a 10 and a 5, the 9 would be the kicker because the three kings would make 'three of a kind'.
An unpaired card used to determine the better of two near-equivalent hands. For example, if two players have a pair of Kings but the next unpaired card in one hand is an 8 and the other a 7 then the 8 would be the kicker and give the hand a slightly higher value.

The unpaired card used to determine the winner if you both have the same pair. (Ie if I have A/K and the flop is A, 3, 4. I have a king kicker.)
A kicker is a player's highest card that is used to break ties in poker hands. For example, if two players make a pair of Aces, one is holding AK and the other AJ, then the player with the K is the winner. If the players had A3 and A2, and the board was A8J5K then the two players tie with the pair of Aces, but split the pot because the best 5 card hand is made up of AAKJ8 and their kicker cards are too low. Kickers are also used to determine which player wins a flush or straight, if two players have a flush, the player with the highest of the suited cards is the winner. If the flush is made up of all over cards, then the players suited kickers do not count, and the pot is split.
