Suits Hand

Why is King-Queen a bad first hand in Texas Hold 'em?

I've been watching High Stakes Poker now for a few years and I've seen numerous occasions where players throw out their initial hands of King-Queen (off suit). Does anyone know why most professional players consider that a bad hand?

At a full table, it's likely to run into things like AQ and AK, or even QQ, KK, or AA. In any of those scenarios you don't want to really be playing KQ. Also, KQ won't get tons of action when it hits top pair and is the best hand. KQ on a flop of Q 9 7 won't get a lot of post flop action from hands you clearly beat...however 77 on a flop of Q 9 7 will probably get a decent amount of action from KQ and KQ is in a world of hurt in this example.

It's a fine hand to open with near the button, but "under the gun"...not so much.
