der Zugzwang

The German term literally means “compulsion to move”:

der Zug = move (in chess; from the verb “ziehen,” which means to make a move, but also to pull,
               of course, der Zug = train);

der Zwang = compulsion, from the verb “zwingen,” which means “to force someone to do something.

In chess, describes a situation in which one player has to make a move, but any move he makes will be disadvantageous to him, whereas if he did not have to move, he would not be at a disadvantage.
