who wins?

Hi all,
who wins in the next situation?
the river is: spades Ace, Q, 2 , clubs J and hearts K
I have spades K and diamonds 4
the other player has clubs K and diamonds 5
Does the sidekick counts and is the other player the winner, or do we play equal and do we split the chips?

Thanks for helping me,

You both have a pair of kings but he has a higher kicker "5" so he wins. One exception would be:

Board : A,J,10,8,K

You : K,4

Opponent : K,5

Now the kicker doesn't come into play because the board cards are all higher. This would be a split pot.

Hope that makes sense.
