Is there a 2-min guarantee of waiting for disconnected players?

Absolutely NOT, there is no such 2-min guarantee!
The meanings of "connection" and "disconnection" can be confusing and there's no 2-min guarantee of waiting:
If the game server does not receive a timely (i.e. within time-per-move) game-related communication from player A, then if player B is significantly ahead, Player B will be allowed to claim a win after one time-per-move expiration.

At you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
