      What's the worst preflop hand? Everyone will tell you 72o (I only hope thats true)

      look at the difference in range 95,48%-96,38%

      When you are playing "better" 96,38% of 100% you arent playing only 62o,52o,42o,32o.

      Does it mean that 72o IS NOT the worst preflop hand?

      indeed, HU 32o is def. the worse hand, and I think the same thing is true for sh.

      Those hands %s are based on values against a random hand I believe. And against a random hand 72o is better than 32o.

      it's just the least playable hand, since it's the lowest hand that has no straight or flush draws

      All in All, another hands like T9s,98s,87s,76s,65s and so on are in the Equilator hand range "valuated" very low

      for example I would rather play T9s than K4s, am I right?

      It depends. In a preflop all-in situation is K4o slightly better then 9ts. If you have postflop action, it´s different, because you can fold if you did not get a draw or a pair. So the playability of 9ts is better.

      but remember: K4o is better than T9s, when comparing equity against a random hand.. but if you're comparing equity against a more reasonable calling range late in a tournament, like Ax+, K8s+, KTo+, etc., then T9s will be far far better.
