Guess the next maximal prime gap.
What do you guess is the next maximal prime gap after 1550?
My guess: 1618

We should have a contest to guess the next record prime gap. Whoever is the closest will win a prize!

Better would be to guess the next maximal gap between twin primes. Here there are three people working on that. Last fiddled with by robert44444uk on 20190525 at 06:46

The contest is still going on. It might be a long time before we find the next record prime gap, but you should still guess.

It looks like the next maximal prime gap is 1552. That is a lot less than I expected.
