COMMENTS

In general (except possibly when it begins with 2), the sum of an even number of consecutive primes is even  hence the restriction to odd chain lengths.

EXAMPLE

17 is the first prime in the chain 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, which is the earliest chain of 2 * 3 + 1 = 7 consecutive primes whose sum, 197, is prime. Hence a(3) = 17.
