The Chasam Sofers Pesicha Drasha For Nezikin

 Daf Yomi Sanhedrin (2.)

The Yeshiva in Pressburg at the times of the Chasam Sofer started learning Meseches Bava Kama on Lag Baomer. 

The Chasam Sofer  gave a פתיחה in the Yeshiva and this is one of the things he said:

מסכת נזיקין has 3 בבות (gates) and each בבא consists of  10 פרקים a total of 30

The Chasam Sofer related it to the Pasuk in Tehillim (119:18) 

גל עיני ואביטה נפלאות מתורתך

"Unveil my eyes so that I may perceive the wonders of your Torah"
The רמז of 3+30  "גל" are for the 3 בבות and 30 פרקים."

It is interesting that the Chasam Sofer didn't mention the רמז all the Chasidishe Seforim write, that "גל" refers to ל"ג בעומר

Perhaps we can use Chasam Sofer's רמז of גל עיני on the first משנה in מסכת סנהדרין which enumerates all Dinim that require
a Bais Din of 3 or more. The Mishna enumerates 30 such cases.אמבצי
