Your idea doesn't make any sense.
Where would you play?
How this site will collect the rake?
Who is going to sent the losing money to the winning player?
If it's some kind of agreement between the players then a huge amount of trust must need to exist between them.

If you win in real money, then you need to put real money in the bank

The only way you are going to do this is by playing the freeroll tournaments where they offer a prize pool of like $10 to be split among anumber of top finishers. That is the only way you are going to get something for nothing.
I can't remember who but I think it was club WPT or wsop.com in the beginning (can't remember which site), who did something like this. They had members pay for a membership but hosted freerolls with prizes for top winner. I think it was a way to circumvent poker betting for American's. Sorry I can't remember the site though.
