Twin Prime
108615*2^110342+1 is twin prime!
Comes in at 7th place :smile: 
Congrats on a nice twin!
If it's not a secret how many n's did you check? I suppose you used the approach recently suggested by Robert Smith (?) Or, how many LLR tests in total? Thanks.

Well, I'm not sure how much to give away because I intend to search higher and I don't know how much was pure luck and how much was technique. I suspect a large amount of luck because it was found after just 220,000 candidates and 164 Riesel primes. (Just 10 days on all 4 cores at 3.18GHz, including sieving.) It's a refinement of this idea: [URL]http://mersenneforum.org/showpost.php?p=117068&postcount=6[/URL] I'm now searching for the No.1 twin until I find one or get bored. Probably the latter. Chris
