what are the odds of losing three hands (all in) to the same player in the same tourney where the villain twice hits his set on the river as a 95% underdog (2 outs each time and these both happened at the final table)
Prior to this I also had him all in dominated aq v a8

Judging by your other AA post you are looking for patterns to reinforce your belief that there is something wrong with the RNG. It doesn't matter if the same hand occurs 3 times in a row. The only odds that matter is in each individual hand.

When Pokerstars deals 90 billion hands over the lifetime of the software I would say almost any pattern will happen at some stage. You were fortunate or unfortunate to witness one such pattern but I would say most if not all of us will see something we think is highly unlikely (but not impossible) at some stage of our poker careers.

Google Negreanu gets angry, after he lost twice with the nuts against quads, might cheer you up knowing it happens in live poker too to such players.

Since the money went in preflop they had way more than 5% equity. The last two were just flips that turned out be a bit dramatic. Poker happens.

Good decisions.
