Another lucky hit:
26*3^1700041+1 may be prime, but N divides 3^((N1)/3))1, restarting with a=5 Time : 938.494 sec. 26*3^1700041+1 is prime! (811128 decimal digits) Time : 946.942 sec. 
Largest prime for 2020 (till now)

Well, 101 happens to be prime. 
Congrats to Scott Brown for the "321+" prime, [URL="https://primes.utm.edu/primes/page.php?id=131362"]3*2^16408818+1[/URL], which was 6.5 years in the making by PrimeGrid.
