Koneru didn't miss it.

Well, I was partially right. I just checked it out on Chessbomb. I missed white's best move at move 2.

Well, 1.Qh7 check seems pretty obvious:

1.Qh7 Kf8 2.Qh8 Ke7 3.Qg7 hg5 4.Be6 and white has what looks like an unstoppable attack. If black tries 4....Bxd1, then white will quickly mate with 5.Bf5. I don't really see a good move for black at move 4.
