In the finals Pan defeated Ga Young Kim (South Korea) 7-4. Jones beat his friend and rival Ronnie Wiseman (USA) by the same score.
The winners both received $15,000, while the runner-ups won $9,000.
In the women's division 2006 champion Jasmin Ouschan (Austria) and Anna Kostanian (USA) shared third. 2000 champion Johnny Archer and fellow American Shawn Putman took the same positions among the men.
Neither Pan nor Jones had won the title before. Jones was runner-up in 1999.
The defending champions had a tough time this time around. Karen Corr (Ireland) lost to Pan in the quarter-finals and Shane Van Boening went out to Robb Saez (USA) in the early rounds.
