First post and I am not a scientist - just a curious soul.

What stops a neutron star/magnetar from collapsing further into a blackhole?

Thank you and I 'almost' understand the degeneracy pressure and it explains why there are a lot neutron stars and not a lot of blackholes.

explains why there are a lot neutron stars and not a lot of blackholes.

Is this known to be the case? It's hard to see how, given that the vast majority of both objects are unobserved.
