Basic JavaScript - Counting Cards

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I don’t know how this test case( 2, J, 9, 2, 7) will return => 1 Bet
This seems to be the answer for me, based on what I’ve seen so far=> 0 Hold
Your code so far

let count = 0;

function cc(card) {
// Only change code below this line
if(card >=2 && card <=6){
  count++;
}
else if(card >=7 && card <= 9){
count =0;
}
else{
count--;
}
let val = "Hold";

if(count >0){
val = 'Bet';
}
return count + " "+val

// return count>0 ? count + " "+ "Bet" : count +" "+ "Hold";
// Only change code above this line
}

cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');
