In basketball, the 1-2-1-1 zone press pressures the in-bounds passer, and attempts to trap the first pass receiver, the technique is considered a "gamble".


Two variations of the technique exist; "one fist", in which the defenders immediately trap the first pass and "two fist", in which the defenders wait until the first pass receiver puts the ball on the floor and starts the dribble, and then quickly closes in and traps. In this situation, a player is waiting for the pass receiver to first commit with the dribble.
