There is no apparent twin prime up to Pt=9 so far. The occurrence of the twin primes becoming scarce when the series are becoming larger.

After lengthy calculation for bigger Pt, it seems the primes are harder to find. It is easier to find the primes when the series consisting of prime numbers instead of odd numbers.

The primes thin out as the numbers get bigger generally.

I agree but in this case it seems that the primes love to hang out with primes more than the odd numbers.
