It seems reasonable to me that the "chip" could come from poker without
stretching, since the chip represents a challenge to the other players to
meet it or back off. "Bargaining" is added when "chip" becomes the metaphor
for the challenge put on the table in negotiations.
(I lay my two cents on the table!)
