So far, from what I've read, the only reason a negative progression strategy doesn't work in a card game, is because the player doesn't have a large enough bankroll to counter long losing streaks. Is this correct?
All persons reading my posts gamble at their own risk, as I do. I don't ordinarily dispute math. I may dispute math I don't understand, or if I think it's faulty. I am not a conspiracy theorist.

Define 'work' in this context?
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.

Bring the player's starting pot back into positive territory.

No. It's correct if one doesn't consider the other logical conclusion that follows from the infinite bankroll argument.

No that is not correct.
The size of a player's bankroll has nothing to do with it as he/she is always limited by the house max bet limits. That is the discipline that the casinos have.

Even if not, it doesn't work with infinite bankroll theory.

If he says infinite bankroll, then I say infinite players. If infinite players, then every possibility occurs. One possibility is player who infinitely loses. Most of our infinite players lose and win, one infinitely wins, but our infinite loser negates our infinite winner (and then some because our infinite winner only wins one unit at a time) and our other infinite players who mostly have an infinite amount of, "Normal," ups and downs will have lost an amount infinitely that equates to the house edge multiplied by the total amount bet.

Whenever the player can. It must occur if the cards are shuffled.

Why must it? What is it?

I'm not following. Can you elaborate?
