Was this rigged or just variance? (Live cash)

Does this sound like a set up to you guys and gals?
Playing 1/3 at a poker club, 9 handed (kind of like a Texas card house) Lots of people here lots of tables. 2 kids 20 years old sit down side by side. Know the dealer very well. Clearly friends between the 3 of them.
Couple orbits go by we add in double board bomb pots For 10$ each . First bomb pot we play 1 kid gets AA scoops the pot after an all in for a 600$ win. 1 Orbit later another bomb pot. Kid gets AA again scoops another 600$ win. Running like god as well up 2000$ in about 1.5hrs at 1/3! (Max buy in was 400$) He then gets up says he has to go.

2 more orbits go by. Other friend he came with gets dealt AsAh I get KsKh another guy gets QQ. Also during the deal, dealer exposes a K. Ends up 3 way all in for a 1000$ pot. Kid scoops.

Thoughts? Or are these guys running real well? Seems too spooky to me to be honest. I’ve played a lot of poker. Play 3/4 times a week. I’ve just never seen that many AA dealt to the same 2 player's. I add in these spots were not the only time that AA were dealt to them. Probably 8 times Total to the same 2 players in a 2 hr time span. They probably made 4000$ betweeN them. My poker senses started tingling and something was telling me this is not right. Never accused anyone of cheating before been playing for the past 15 years.

What do you guys think? Or am I just feeling tilted and over reacting? What have your experiences been outside casinos?

Personally that’s the last time I ever play outside of a casino.

    I won't play without a shuffle machine.

    People cheat. And they're usually obvious and shameless and successful.

    You know some of those can set a deck, right?

    If you feel like something shady is happening, change tables. I cant make good decisions if my gut is tellimg me Im being cheated.

    Last weekend I sat at the table and was dealt QQ 3 times, AA and KK in the first orbit. Need that on a monthly basis, at least.

    Not the old ones. The newer style are frightening.

    Aren't poker clubs more like casinos? IE that they're regulated and whatnot.

    I've been dealt AA consecutively before, it's rare but it happens.

    Not quite like casinos. This is kind of club that rotates to new locations every week. Same dealers, it’s allowed to operate under the guise of a “charity” X % goes to charity every week. No cameras etc. I used the term club because it’s close to it in legal terms I think.
