No one knows.


I know this answer is disappointing but it is the truth. The fact is, the size of a black hole is immaterial when it comes to our general knowledge of them. Every black hole has a place which is known as the event horizon. It is at this point in a black hole where the force of gravity is so great that not even light can escape. That being the case, astronomers can only guess at what happens beyond that point.
