The question is :
Why some pools with low global
hashrate power find more bitcoin blocks
than other pools with higher hashrate power ?

The answer is just dumb luck.

If you flip a coin 4 times and it lands on tails (3) times do you question it?

It's all pure random luck.
The more hashing power you have the more shares/chances you or the pool have at solving a block.
