      I thought I could freeze BB play as a general rule.
      However, I lost and it happened on same situation with AA on 4 waypot.

      If there is a rule that don't fishing with freeze play on pokerstars,
      I'll stop this play and stop playing on pokerstars!

      I would not blame PokerStars because I dont think you should reraise so small when you get reraised. I would mostly shove there because I am almost guaranteed to get at least 1 call and you have often the best hand here

      Now you are allowing your opponents to suck out on you because you give them the favouable pot odds to call. & as I can see from the spoiler they indeed suck out on you so the best way to prevent that is to play accordingly which is shove Preflop

      Best regards,

      I was greedy because I was approaching 50NL with suggested bankroll management.

      Ok,I'll try to follow the basic principal.
