    You will still be at a disadvantage at +1. Wait until +2 and bet ~1/5 of your ultimate max bet. If you're near the end of the shoe and your TC rises to +1 many players pop their bets a little bit to give them a head start on raising their bets later on in case the count jumps dramatically in the last few rounds.

    Yet again, see BJA3, p. 231, Table 10.34. +1 TC is NOT a disadvantage.
