Unlucky Card Counting function

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

// What is wrong with this card counting function?? When I pass a high card value ( i.e, 10, “J”, “Q”, etc, etc…) the count variable does not decrease by 1 and does not return the running count + string “Hold”…

  **Your code so far**

let count = 0;

function cc(card) {
// Only change code below this line
 switch(card) {
  case 2:
  case 3:
  case 4:
  case 5:
  case 6:
    count++; 
    break;
  case  10:
  case "J":
  case "Q":
  case "k":
  case "A":
    count--;
    break;
}
// I want to keep this if/else piece of code 
is there something I'm missing here?  */

if(count > 0) {
return count + " Bet";
} else {
return count + " Hold";
}
// Only change code above this line
}

cc(2); cc(3); cc(7); cc('K'); cc('A');  /* Also, can someone please explain how can I console.log out the result of this sequence of card numbers and explain the logic when I pass these card values in the function. Thanks in advance...  */
