Aces in Their Faces

By Bob Kohler

If you attended the Desert Magic Seminar earlier this year, you may have seen a fellow sitting on the floor frying everyone in sight with a remarkable four ace assembly. That fellow was Bob Kohler, and "Aces in Their Faces" is the routine he was performing.

The Kohler routine uses an interesting set of gaffed cards originally created by Burling Hull. These cards allow very clean "shows" of the backs and faces of the cards and make the subsequent vanishes quite astounding. Bob's cards were printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company, consequently they feel and look exactly like real cards. In addition to the three gaffs, you receive a very nicely printed 16-page instruction manual, illustrated with 15 photographs. Bob has eliminated all the hard work, and the routine is virtually sleightless. In addition, at the end of the routine you are reset and ready to perform again.

Bob has several versions of this routine, some of which require more sleight-of-hand ability. These routines will appear on a video which will be released in the near future.

I highly recommend, "Aces in Their Faces." Even if you don't do the routine Bob provides, it's great to have a genuinely printed set of these cards. (By the way, Bob was not the first to develop a four ace routine using the Burling Hull gaffs. Although not mentioned in the instructions, Ed Marlo had a version called "Marlo's Aces" which was published in the December 1965 issue of The New Tops. If you're interested, you should be able to find it inM.I.N.T Volume 1.)
