11:13 AM PT -- Despite initial reports, cops say the sting did NOT involve "male" prostitutes ... but rather prostitutes of the female variety.

World Series of Poker champ Greg Raymer -- aka the FossilMan -- has been busted for trying to bury his bone ... after allegedly soliciting a prostitute online.

A rep for the Wake Forest PD in North Carolina says Raymer was popped at a Wake Forest hotel on Wednesday.

Police say the 48-year-old poker legend was one of six men who responded to an advertisement posted by an undercover cop on a website frequented by prostitutes. The men have since been released on $1,000 bond.

According to Raymer's website, he is currently married.

Raymer -- famous for his lizard-eye hologram glasses -- won the 2004 World Series of Poker main event. He reportedly owns a nearby NC house valued at nearly $1.6 million.

First of all this guy looks like he is in his 60's. And how much money does it take to have sex with a fat, hairy, sweaty, disgusting pig ?? His wife should be happy as now she can file divorce with a better settlement, though I am sure she is no prize. Who would marry such an ugly pig ??? He certainly doesn't have nearly enough money.

Prostitution should be legalized and regulated. Let consenting adults do whatever they decide to do with their own bodies. Put the resources into stopping underage and forced prostitution instead.

Sounds like something Tony G or Mike Matusow would have been busted for. But obviously, with a face like that, Raymer has to pay cash money for it.

Legalize prostitution...it might help save some marriages if the woman who likes to withhold sex knows that her husband can go and easily get some some where else with no strings attached.

Let me see if I've got this right.... We live in a society where we get arrested if we pay a woman for sex but if we marry and divorce, we get arrested if we don't pay after the sex...??

TMZ is the only website saying it was a gay prostitute. I guess when you are all degenerates like Harvey and his gay staff you want to make everybody think everybody is gay. Raymer was just a good ole boy out looking for a woman and got popped. move along nothing to see here.

Next time, he needs to ask his escort to dress up in a skimpy personal trainer outfit. This way he has an alibi.
