Currently (after 180.000 games) it is 3.1 +- 1.0.

So the common wisdom that contempt cannot possibly work in self-play (an opinion that has been voiced by many people, including myself) seems to have been soundly refuted.... At least for SF.

Now one has to understand this....

The test is bogus. See my comment on the diff.
