2004 World Series of Poker champion Greg “FossilMan” Raymer has confirmed rumors that he parted ways with the world’s largest online poker room, PokerStars.com. 

Few details were offered related to the decision that Rayer, whose moniker comes from his love of collecting fossils, confirmed on the TwoPlusTwo.com website.

“There has been a lot of discussion about my representation of PokerStars, and it is true that right now I am not representing them. In the near future, I will have a more detailed statement discussing this situation, but I have no further comment at this time. For those of you who have been reading about and discussing this situation, I appreciate all of the positive comments I have received. It is very gratifying to hear so many nice things from so many good people, and I am touched by your support. Sincerely, Greg Raymer (FossilMan)”
