The GP commit is not part of the first close because it is the General Partner's contribution to the fund, which typically amounts to 1% of the target fund size. This commitment is separate from the investments made by Limited Partners during the first close. The GP commit demonstrates the General Partner's alignment of interests with the Limited Partners and their confidence in the fund's success. It is important to follow standard protocol and not let LPs influence the GP commit during the fundraising process.
