I think i have a male, but when he matures how many time can he breed before he die? I know males don't live long like females.

It really depends on the individual, as long as they are making sperm webs they are breedable. Some will even mate if they don't have sperm loaded, others will refuse till they make one.

It also depends on whether or not they get eaten or not. No but really, a Grammostola spp. will breed alot more then a Pterinochilus spp. because of it's longer lifespan.

Yup, as long as they keep making sperm-webs they should be viable males.

Got a friend here in S.africa who had a MM B. albopilosum..bred it once w/ a female, got a sac. Bred her again a few months later, got a sac. A year and a half after he matured, he was still breeding her and got another sac...
