Once I have played a series of games and I have the file data.log, if I run the test again and use the file, in each run I have different results and the results seem quite random.
This happens because summarizing works by sampling a number of random values. As far as I can see the arguments you get out are quite similar.

I realize this might actually be annoying, so I've pushed a new version that summarizes using gradient descent and should be more deterministic (though still not entirely, as it picks a 100 random starting points for the decent.)
