The 2013 World Series of Poker was 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 was 62 bracelet events, culminating in the $10,000 No Limit Hold'em Main Event beginning on July 6. The November Nine concept returned for a sixth year, with the Main Event finalists returning on November 4.

The One Drop Foundation, a charity founded by Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberté devoted to providing safe water supplies in developing countries, continued a relationship with the WSOP that began with the 2012 edition. While last year's $1 million Big One for Big Drop was not held this year, the WSOP held two events that raised money for the charity. The first event was the One Drop High Roller, with a buy-in of $111,111; the Rio donated its 3% rake of the entry fees to One Drop. The other was 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.
