      I advise you to reread the articles about preflop play with SSS. You hold an AJo in MP1 which is a clear fold.

      ...and if you check the this forum, you will see that calling with SSS is considered a sin. ;)

      Now, as played, you have to push flop, since you have a made hand, TPTK. About your question, whether this was a bad beat or not, I would say odds were in your favour on the flop, but the villain had a strong draw against you, which means he had a lot of chances to improve his hand, so I wouldn't call it a bad beat.

      P.S.: When you post hands remove the results, because then others can advise you objectively.
