// Only change code below this line
var count = 0;
if (card == 2 || card == 3 || card == 4 || card == 5 || card == 6) {
if ((card == 2 || card == 3 || card == 4 || card == 5 || card == 6)) { return "5 Bet"}
else {
++count;
return count + " Bet";
}
}

else  if (card ==  7 || card == 8 || card == 9) {

count = count + 0;
return count + " Hold";

}

else if (  card == 10 || card == "J" || card == "Q" || card ==  "K" || card == "A") {
if ((card == 10 || card == "J" ||  card == "Q" || card == "K" || card == "A")) { return "-5 Bet"}
else {

--count;
return count + " Hold";
}

}

return count;
// Only change code above this line
}

@magalle,
just running your code and console.log the results, it seems that you are returning 5 Bet for everything.
Another thing is that you have a global count variable and a local one (with the same name). You are not supposed to have both. And initializing the local count variable everytime the cc method is called, is also bad since you want the count variable to store the cards seen from previous runs.

I would suggest that you start this challenge from the beginning again with these things in mind. I would also recommend reading the instructions again.

Good luck.
