    .bw…w.

    …wbww.

    …w….

    ……..

    ……..

    with better formating (I hope):

    .bw...w....wbww....w............................................

    It doesn't look like a zungzwang to me. The player to move, can win here (if I see correctly). Zungzwang is when the player to move has to make a losing move.

    Well seen yper, what about for black :

    .bw...w....wbwww...wbbb.....w.w.....ww..........................
    

    … shows that a small material is not an advantage

    …. hum no that was just a losing position…

    any real zugzwang welcome.

    Black to play :

    ....w.....wbbb....wwwww.....b...............w...................
