the name - Damezumari is a term from the board game Go. It refers to a situation where a stone or group of stones, which you have played, is in a difficult position that is impossible to salvage. It is usually translated as "shortage of liberties". More generally, it means 'stuck in a rut you can't get out of' or, more simply, screwed.
