Congratulations to DeleteNull for finding the 2.6 million digit mega-prime 273809*2^8932416-1 and eliminating k=273809 from the Riesel Problem! 49 k's remain.
This is PrimeGrid's 60th mega prime of 2017, our 195th mega prime overall, and the 15th k eliminated by PrimeGrid from The Riesel Problem. This is also DeleteNull's second mega-prime, as well as the second k he's eliminated from one of the our conjecture projects.

My lucky number is 75898524288+1
