If you get a piece back by moving a pawn to the enemy's side it would originally take the place of the pawn, yet some people play (with modified rules) that the piece is taken back to the person's own side (the person that got across the board with the pawn). In professional Chess (such as tournaments) plays in the way that if a pawn is to cross to the enemy's side, that pawn becomes a queen.
