The 2013 World Series of Poker is the 44th annual World Series of Poker (WSOP). It was held at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Paradise, Nevada between May 29-July 15, 2013. There will be 62 bracelet events, culminating in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event beginning on July 6. The November Nine concept will return for a sixth year, with the Main Event finalists returning on November 4.

The One Drop Foundation, a charity founded by Cirque de Soleil founder Guy Laliberté devoted to providing safe water supplies in developing countries, is continuing a relationship with the WSOP that began with the 2012 edition. While last year's $1 million Big One for Big Drop will not be held this year, the WSOP is holding two events that will raise money for the charity. The first event is the One Drop High Roller, with a buy-in of $111,111; the Rio will donate its 3% rake of the entry fees to One Drop. The other is the "Little One for One Drop", with a $1,111 buy-in plus unlimited rebuys, with One Drop receiving $111 from each buy-in and rebuy.[1]

In April 2013, the WSOP expanded and held bracelet events in Australia at the 2013 World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific.
