(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A161910 Y-toothpick sequence starting at the corner of an infinite hexagon from which protudes a half toothpick with an angle = Pi/6. 1
0, 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 12, 19, 22, 25, 28, 35, 40, 47, 56, 73 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)

COMMENTS

The sequence gives the number of Y-toothpicks in the structure after n rounds. A160123 (the first differences) gives the number added at the n-th round.

See the entries A160120, A161830 and A161426 for more information about Y-toothpick sequences.
