Top kicker

The highest possible side card or kicker in a poker hand.

Example (Texas Hold'em):
Player Board

The player has a pair of kings. With the ace, he also has the best possible kicker. There is no possible pair of kings with a better kicker that can beat this hand. An opponent would need a higher ranking hand, two pair or better, to beat this hand.
