    I am just started the 2nd round of a duo tournament with a player who has made a move in 85 days. In the game where I an white his timebank is going down but it doesn't seem to be moving in the game where he is black.
    How will I claim a timeout win in this game?

    Tournament games will - eventually - auto timeout.
    Just make sure it's their go on both games and wait for the system to tidy up.
    It sometimes does not look like a clock is ticking when a game hasn't started properly - but behind the scenes the clock ticks away.

    We have the same situation in one of our clan member's games. Does the same apply in clan games as in tourneys?

    Will the opponent's white game eventually timeout, even though he has not yet moved and there is no indication of the timebank depleting?

    Yes. As stated, the timer is going in the background. Watch for the skull.
