Default Any possibillity to know which k is more likely?

As you know, I don't know Jack about number theory, so I need to ask.

If I'm not mistaken, there are k's that produce more primes than others. Is this predictable or trial and error?
If predictable, we could try the numbers with higher probability first.

May the professionals warp in. H.

See my last 2 posts in thread http://www.mersenneforum.org/showthread.php?t=7619

Based on this analysis, I think there are no prime cullen primes less than n=4M.
