Pretty sure best way is 44 in middle, KJ in back, and I think 8 in the middle also. You can't really pair the 8 unless you put it in the back because pairing it in the middle makes you need 2 pair in the back and pairing it up top is really putting the pressure on for the other 2 hands. But putting it in the back wastes a slot for making more hands (including possible straight), but it's not terrible, since you can at least pair it if you pull another since it's bigger than the 44.. So it really boils down to where the best place is to waste the 8.
