Incrementing a counter in try/except while loop


This Content is from Stack Overflow. Question asked by SomaJuice

I cannot understand why second is not incrementing in the example.
I have been looking at How would I stop a while loop after n amount of time?
And i could use the time library and a timeout to solve this, but want to do it simply by incrementing a counter, why is not possible?

import time
snipe_amount = None
second = 0
while snipe_amount is None and second < 20:
        snipe_amount = someFunctions(sds)

    except Exception as e:
        second =+1
        print(f"error {second}sec")
