  tpstar: <All available crosstables to this tournament show a win for Duras over Spielmann, so the cg score is probably correct, and the score in the Spence book was most likely opening analysis by somebody who carelessly thought it was the actual Spielmann-Duras game.>

<I submitted the PGN for the alternate score since this game didn't match the score in the Tartakower/duMont book.>
