It was a bluff poker champ Greg Raymer could not call.

The 48-year-old Raymer, the 2004 World Series of Poker winner, was arrested with six other men by police Wednesday during a female prostitution sting in Wake Forest, N.C.

According to TMZ, the sting was set up through an online advertisement on a website allegedly used by prostitutes. Men who responded to the ad were apprehended at a Wake Forest hotel.

Raymer, a.k.a. Fossilman, is charged with misdemeanor prostitution charges. He was released on $1,000 bond, and has a court date set for April 18.

According to his official website he is married.
