%N Denominators of primes-only best approximates (POBAs) to Pi; see Comments.

%C Suppose that x > 0. A fraction p/q of primes is a primes-only best approximate (POBA), and we write "p/q in B(x)", if 0 < |x - p/q| < |x - u/v| for all primes u and v such that v < q, and also, |x - p/q| < |x - p'/q| for every prime p' except p. Note that for some choices of x, there are values of q for which there are two POBAs. In these cases, the greater is placed first; e.g., B(3) = (7/2, 5/2, 17/5, 13/5, 23/7, 19/7, ...). See A265759 for a guide to related sequences. Many terms of A265806 are also terms of A265801 (denominators of POBAs to tau).

%e The POBAs to Pi start with 5/2, 7/2, 17/5, 23/7, 41/13, 167/53, 211/67, 223/71, 619/197. For example, if p and q are primes and q > 53, then 167/53 is closer to Pi than p/q is.
