In you can see the minimum "Goldbach sets" than can produce the first 50,100,250 even numbers.
It interesting to know that there are 24 odd primes available for produce the 50 even numbers < 100 but 13 are sufficient. Same, there are 45 odd primes available for the 100 even numbers < 200 but 19 are sufficient.
