Bookie Chess:

Bookie Chess is an online game playing system which allows two players to play 'Bookie Chess'. <p>In the first stage of the game, pawns and kings are hidden. Two players estimate (or "bid"), secretly and in writing, the probability, in percent, of each color winning the game given this incomplete information. The players then reveal their estimates. Whichever player bid higher on white plays white. The other player plays black. Players then gain points for winning, based on the amount of the bids.
