(Courtesy, World Series of Poker) Christopher Sand of Las Vegas won the first bracelet event of the 47th annual World Series of Poker on Thursday, as he took down the $565 buy-in Casino Employees No-limit Hold ’em tournament at the Rio Convention Center.

Sand, 45, defeated Kerryjane Craigie from Sevenoaks, England, to claim the $75,157 first-place prize.

This is the second career WSOP in-the-money finish for Sand, who works as a sports book writer and cashier at Caesars Palace.

He also cashed in last year’s “Colossus” No-limit Hold ‘em event.

The Casino Employees tournament drew 731 entrants for a prize pool of $365,500, with the top 110 finishers getting paid.

Play resumed Thursday afternoon with 23 players, and Sand entered the final table as the chip leader.

But he dipped down to only seven big blinds during six-handed play before doubling up on back-to-back hands.

Sand held almost a 3½-to-1 chip advantage entering heads-up play and needed 20 hands to stack Craigie, who earned $46,420.

On the final hand, Sand held pocket kings and dodged several outs on the river against Craigie’s pocket sevens.
