Card counting challenge - help

Hi I’m a little lost. First i solved this using if else, tested it in visual studio and it worked fine but I couldn’t seem to get this site to take my solution. So now I’m trying it with switch, and it still won’t take my solution. I also tested this in visual studio and it worked fine. I’m pretty new to javascript so any help is appreciated! Thank you!

Your code so far

var count = 0;

function cc(card) {
switch (card) {
  case 2:
  case 3:
  case 4:
  case 5:
  case 6:
  case 10:
  case 'J':
  case 'Q':
  case 'K':
  case 'A':
let holdBet = ''
if (holdBet >= 0){
  holdBet = 'bet'
} else {
    holdBet = 'hold'

return count + ' ' + holdBet;


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

Challenge: Counting Cards

Link to the challenge:

if needed I can post my if else solution as well ?

really, your issue is much smaller than you think, and still something that can trip developers for days: a typo

the challenge requires to return "Bet" or "Hold", you are returning "bet" or "hold"
fix that and it seems you should pass with no other issues

OMG. Haha THANK YOU. I must’ve retyped this and my other solution 4 or 5 times trying to figure out why.

Also, your if should not be checking if (holdBet >= 0) (there are two bugs in this condition).
