What does "fichas" mean? Poker chips? How would you translate this? "Poker chips are used while playing poker"? Muchas gracias!

Yes, they can mean poker chips.

Las fichas se usan para jugar / cuando se juega al póker.

Interestingly, "la ficha" was WOTD on this very site:

http://www.spanishdict.com/answers/173121/la-palabra-del-da-la-ficha (sorry, still learning how to link stuff here!)

And now from the world of Modismos Mexicanos comes "la fichera" which carries the meaning of "a woman earning income in a bar with 'ladies drinks' (lit.: from ficha, a token)" - no comment on the method she employs, probably by providing pleasant company & conversation... but the "token" she earns is almost always cash, hence the common use of "ficha" to mean "money" or "funds" here along the US Southwestern border.... tongue laugh
