      I didnt want to 3bet preflop because I think i can explore this players huge agression pos - flop.

      My question is: is it +EV to go for it on the flop?

      I think those are still too little hands to 3-bet it for value and to shove the flop, without any previous read.

      I think as played it was a nice hand :)

      I would prefer 3-betting pf, but if you have reason to think he might 4-bet light you can always call and play postflop ip.
      Likely would raise flop for value and b/c turn, since flop is quite drawy and he would call you down or get all-in with worse hands
      You can raise/call shove on the turn, since there are two flushdraws on the board but if you decide to call him down most river cards then I think call is also fine.
      River check is standard, since it is hard him to c/c river with worse hands
