I set up a short 2-table individual full Howell movement tournament yesterday for one of my small clubs. 7 rounds, 2 boards a round. Every player played with a different partner each round, as they should. However, I played against 2 players 4 times, 2 players 2 times, 2 players 1 time, and 1 player not at all. This looks like a bug in the individual full Howell movement. The tournament number was 22822-1610460257.

I can't find your tourney, but howell doesnt work for individual tourneys, only for pairs.

I cannot argue with that answer. However, it does seem to work well enough for every person to partner with every other. Since all boards are played simultaneously, it would not be hard to fix the algorithm so that each person would compete against every other person twice.

I'm thinking you just set up an individual tourney without specifying Howell movement and allow the system to determine the movement (?).

If you create individual clocked tournament with N-1 rounds, where N is number of players in the tournament,
players will get new partner every round and end up parding all other players exactly once.
