Small typo: - isn’t - -

It is important to format your code properly, or it is not possible to see correctly your code, as you can see it can bring people to give the wrong suggestions as what happened with @JeremyLT.
I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.


your return values are 5 bet or -1 hold
how do these differ from what’s asked in the challenge description?
