According to WSOP's website, poker players at the 2013 World Series of Poker raised more than 1.3 million dollars for One Drop, a non-governmental organisation based out of Montreal, Canada that fight poverty worldwide by supporting access to clean water.

Thanks to all the generous players who participated in the One Drop events at the 44th Annual WSOP and additional private donations, a total of 13,000 people in West Africa, Asia and latin America will be provided with clean water!

"Again, we have created history!" said Cirque du Soleil founder and ONE DROP chairman Guy Laliberté. "I am thankful to WSOP for their dedication and to the poker community for their generosity. The real winners are the people for which ONE DROP will provide access to safe water. These families can break the cycle of poverty and have hope for a better future. Together we have shown the world once again how giving the poker community is and that the ripple effect continues on."

Thats a pretty nice sum and of course the casue is really noble, i mean it must be hard not to have water where you live...

They always raise good money for this wonderful charity. I think that all the players deserve a big pat on the back for doing this.Very generous
