Grandmaster in trouble

Black to move

A position from the 2013 U.S. Championship in Saint Louis.
Grandmaster Yury Shulman is playing White against Jorge Sammour-Hasbun.

White is in big trouble, but Black went wrong with 19...0-0.
Shulman continued with 20.Ke2! and even won the game later.

Black has a much stronger move than 19...0-0. Can you find it?

About me

I played my first chess game in December 1977 and was lucky to hold draw. I continued to play chess and joined a chess club in September 1978. I'm still enjoying playing chess. I like to do many other things than playing chess. Long walks, some jogging, cycling, reading books, listen to music, watch movies, writing and much more. Life is fun!
