Topic: have had (one's) chips
Posted: Friday, April 3, 2020 10:31:05 AM

I am familiar with a similar idiom, "to cash in your chips."

It typically means to cash-out or get some type of compensation.

It can also mean to die.

Never heard this idiom using "have had" .

This is coming from a US (west-coast) perspective.

Speaking of have had... I am suddenly craving some salsa... ;)
