Predict n for the third (future) (PR)prime Smr(n)

THE RULES OF THE GAME:
Rules may be clarified later. New rules for the next game may be suggested in this thread. Make your guess clear in your post. GAME ON! ___________ *Eligible in this case is different from the other guessing game. Y'all know that there n must be prime. Here, at the very least, numbers for which Smr(n) is divisble by 3, 7, or 11 will be considered "absurd". The obvious rule of divisibility by 3 is easily found. Or else, please make sure that you at least run pfgw f q"Smr(my_favorite_n)" and it doesn't immediately produce a factor.

Sure thing. Hint: guessing too close to another guess shares territory between guesses in half.
It's best to sparse them out. Guesses are like ...holes  everyone's got one. Guesses are just like playing preference or sports bridge  you just need to play it best given the prior data (your and your partner's 26 cards). If you are worse than statistical expectation even if you take 12 hands but you were expected to take 13, in a bridge tournament you will get a demerit.
