For a legal position, here is an improvement of one over Kostas’s 31 There are 16 forced mates per side. It’s a symmetrical position as well with a mutual pin in the middle.

#1, Duplex
(= 10+10 )


EDIT: The a5 and h5 pawns have been removed.

The mutual pin is an excellent idea. It adds two mates effortlessly. The position works even without the pawns a5 and h4. Good job, James.

Many thanks Kostas. I have now removed the a5 and h5 pawns.

Most of the tasks that were mentioned here were addressed decades ago as Hauke already indicated. You can find tons of possible scenarios if you search for k='einz%gerrekord' on the PDB. For example for

Forced Duplex-mates with James' position in 1950: P1178852
The same with promoted force: P1180136
Forced Duplex-stalemates: P0005615

Thanks Arno. Looks like I was completely anticipated 69 years ago!

Also, for an illegal position, see P1180673 with 48 forced duplex mates.
