I have someone go all in preflop then stating his hand in the chat box, with the rest of the table left to act last night. I'm pretty sure this is against the rules, so I venture over to PS's rules page and find this. I've never heard of such a thing.
Ok. Fine, but how can rule 7 not contradict rule 8? Maybe his doesn't apply preflop? You got me.7. In cash games only, players still in a hand may chat about what cards they claim to hold. This is "coffee-housing," which is common in poker. However, players (in the hand or not) may not coach or otherwise suggest how another player should play his hand. For example, it is okay to say "You should call; I'm bluffing." It is not okay to say, "You should call; he's bluffing."
Oh, yeah. I did a nice job quoting that misspelling in the title. bah!9. In both cash games and tournaments, if there are more than two players left in a pot, players (in the hand or not) may not chat anything that might reasonably be interpreted as affecting the play of the hand. For instance, suppose players A, B, and C are in a hand. A bets, and B is next to act. C may not chat, "I'm going to fold" (whether he intends to fold or not).
