Assuming that the dispersion coefficient in front of u_{xxx} is positive and uniformly bounded away from the origin and that a primitive function of the ratio between the anti-dissipation and the dispersion coefficients is bounded from below, we prove the existence and uniqueness of a solution u such that hu belongs to a classical Sobolev space, where h is a function related to this ratio. The LWP in H^s (\R), s > 1/2, in the classical (Hadamard) sense is also proven under an assumption on the integrability of this ratio. Our approach combines a change of unknown with dispersive estimates. Note that previous results were restricted to H^s (\R), s > 3/2, and only used the dispersion to compensate the anti-dissipation and not to lower the Sobolev index required for well-posedness.
