What is the best online resource to check if a band (10M) is open?

Why not just go on the air instead of on line.  Call CQ CQ CQ

Guaranteed to get results if the band is open

There's plenty of beacons to listen for.

This is a GREAT resource; just listen for the beacons:

But my very first suggestion is the same as WN2C.  Call CQ a few times!  Happens all the time--a band sounds dead, you call a few times, and someone replies out of the blue.  Last year 15meters sounded dead, before dawn, driving to work, and a ZL came back to my CQ.  :-) How fun is *that*?  ;-)
