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.

Hee, hee, I see that Greg tweeted this less than a month ago:
"Thrilled to be home for a while with my lovely wife & daughter..."
Not quite thrilled enough, it seems...

They are NOW saying Raymer was busted in a heterosexual sting, not a male prostitute. See Derek Rowles on Twitter (Reporter covering event).

Another sexual deviant, you should see these white men in Thailand and The Phillipines with 12 year old boys and girls. They then return to their respectable places in their white communities. What a ****ing bunch of people Sick, sick, sick, the slave trade should have open eyes to these people.

Gee, he looks so normal? It's hard to believe this creepy man would want to hire a male hustler for sodomy. Are you sure you have the story right TMZ?
