Seems like good advice. But I wonder if it is necessarily true. I know that it is true if the information given is 100% accurate and you are certain that the others will make the appropriate adjustment based on the information. But what if:
1. You know that the player will use the information inappropriately
2. You are lying. Or, at a minimum, you are misleading
Example, you tell somebody that you folded KK preflop to a raise because "you won't call any raises this late in the tournament, you just want ot fold fold fold and back into the money. You will only play AA" And you are lying by saying this. Later on, the other guy is in the SB, you are in the BB, and he raises with rags. You can call with anything, and he will fear that you have AA. So he folds when you bet the flop because he can't beat AA. Of course, you have 27o.
So, I think that it may be to your advantage to 'reveal' information about your hand, as long as 1 of the 2 above criteria are met.
