here is some sample data from player bonus table

playerid  bonusid
1234        2
1234         3
1235        2


Trying to write a query that returns list of player ids that have an entry with bonusid of 2 AND a bonusid of 3

Using the sample above only player id of 1234 would be returned

Guessing there's a more graceful way to do that, but the below T-SQL works.  
Copy-paste it into your SSMS, execute to verify it meets your needs, then modify to work with your tables.
CREATE TABLE bonus (playerid int, bonusid int)
GO

INSERT INTO bonus (playerid, bonusid) 
VALUES (1234, 2), (1234, 3), (1235,2)

SELECT p2.playerid
FROM (SELECT DISTINCT playerid FROM bonus WHERE bonusid=2) p2
	JOIN (SELECT DISTINCT playerid FROM bonus WHERE bonusid=3) p3 ON p2.playerid = p3.playerid
ORDER BY p2.playerid

Looks like there are three correct answers here, one of which came first, and a quick glance shows that the simplest one came last.

Can you comment on them?

Have you tried other two solutions? Whether they are failing? If they are working you would have split the points. Isn't it?
