AA vs unknown that seems passive

Player is relatively unknown, only have 14 hands on them up to now. He had been playing somewhat passive for the couple hands I've seen.

It was tough to put him on a FD considering I have the case ace. Should I be jamming the flop here?

    not being result oriented.

    Why are you betting the flop?
    Why half pot sizing?

    I'm betting the flop because UTG+2 had been playing passive, but calling down quite a bit. I also put CO on a medium pocket pair so I'm expecting him to call on a paired board. Half size made for a good size CO to jam the turn and will also keep UTG+2 in the pot and if either of them fold, I can bet half & half to be AI by the river.

    Checking to see if you had a plan ✔

    I will point out by you holding :AS::AC: you block some of their calling range and at the same time you unblock hands like :AD::TD: something to consider when choosing your sizing.

    No I don't think you should jam the flop.

    I check min raise which includes a caller often means strength. Well at the local live tourneys I play it does.

    If everyone just calls the flop, you could jam the turn

    What is the range do you assign to UTG+2? Why do you think CO has a medium pocket pair? The bet on the turn by UTG+2 seems to be a bet for value. He doesn't want it to check through. I think your fold is fine.
