Greg Raymer, the 2004 World Series of Poker champion called a pair of attackers’ bluff at the Bellagio hotel-casino in Las Vegas, NV. The foiled robbery occurred around 2 a.m. on December 20th as Raymer was returning to his hotel room after he finished playing in a cash game, according to Las Vegas police.
As Raymer approached his room that morning, two attackers appeared out of nowhere and attempted to force him into his room. Raymer resisted and began struggling with the men as one of the men pulled out a gun and stated: “We just want the money.”
Raymer did not stop there however, he yelled for security after he was able to knock one of the attackers to the ground with Free Sports Picks. Moments later the attackers realizing this would be no easy feat fled the hallway.
Police later made an arrest in the case, but no identity was released. A security guard at the casino said he recognized the person as a poker player from a previous incident at the casino.
On an unspecified message board Raymer was quoted as saying: “I don’t write this to brag, I just want any robbery-minded people out there who hear about this to know that I’m a tough mark, and they won’t get that much off me even if they succeed.”
Grey Raymer, known as the “Fossilman,” due to his dinosaur fossil good luck charm and unique holographic reptile glasses, won the 2004 WSOP main event beating out 2,576 opponents which netted him $5 million in cash.
