You are right about this being subtle. I have looked at this off and on since Thursday.

I finally threw in the towel and looked it up. 1.Qf4- the target is the f6 square to take advantage of the weak back rank. I suggest those curious just go to this game on Chessbomb since they are replaying the tournament there this past week in the absence of the regular schedule.
