"I Wouldn't Have Made it to Day Three!"

When we caught up to Table 55 we found a player from under the gun make it 750 to see a flop. Action then folded to a player in late position who rereaised and made it 2,000. Jamie Gold on the button placed a chip on his whole cards and started to think what his best option was. Gold opted to call, and action was back on the under the gun player who folded.

With a {4-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{k-Clubs} flop spread out the late position player checked and Gold threw in four yellow chips for a bet of 4,000. While the player in late position sat and thought about what he wanted to do, Gold started talking. Gold asked the dealer "what are the rules on what people are allowed to say?". After receiving an answer along the lines of "you can not talk about the hand or your cards" Gold went on to say "hypothetically can I say it'd be really smart if you wanted to stay in the tournament if you folded this hand?". Gold's opponent then immediately folded.

Gold flipped over {A-}{k-} for a pair of kings. Someone at the table asked "weren't those rules made because of you?" Gold stated "yup, wouldn't have made it to day three if I couldn't talk".
