Ughzwang. When your position is so bad that zugzwang would be an improvement.

  perfidious: <PB> The finish is ughly, right enough.

Could this be the same Jim Warren whom I played in the 1988 US Open?

  sea7kenp: Ughzwang? Let's see: Either Black takes the Bishop (25 ... hxg6), or is a Piece down. Then, White can play 26 Be5, threatening a Windmill.
