lets start my using simple geometry.

how menny points are on a line?
- infinite
how menny points are on two lines?
- infinite
but do you get the point that although there are infinite in both cases you could also say that two lines have 2x as menny points as one line.

same sort of thing with black holes. lets say for example that black holes need a min mass of 1 unit and because escape velocity can be found using simple physics you can say that the event horizon is however big, but if a black hole has 2x the mass then it will create a greater warp in space time even though at the singularity they would both be infinite at some point p a distance d away from the center of the black hole their curve of space-time would be diffrent.

ps please tell me if this helps or if you need more info or if i can make a point more clear
