assuming you have some pk column, and another column you can use to choose which record you want to keep, you can do:


with a as (
  select *, row_numbe() over(partition by pk_column1,pk_column2 order by case when value_column='value to keep' then -1 else 1 end asc) rown
 from your_table
)
delete from a where rown > 1
