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 One 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.
