Negative slope vs Positive Variance

Negative slope vs Positive Variance.

Sometimes it is good to get out of the way and take an opportunity.

Sometimes I do the following:

When the TC is +5 and the current account begins to fall (Negative slope) I decide to keep my maximum bet of 24 units because I am winning more hands than I lose (Positive variance)

This goes against the betting strategy based on True Count but when the opportunity presents itself I do it !!!

And how do you do it?
