Is everything in the "try" block being run?

Is everything in the "try" block always being run? Or does it stop and go to the catch block as soon as an IllegalArgumentException is picked up? For example below, could you confirm that the code would not run the "isValidLetter = true" line if the "isHit = game.applyGuess(guess);" produced the IllegalArgumentException error?

  try {
    isHit = game.applyGuess(guess);
    isValidLetter = true;
  } catch(IllegalArgumentException iae) {
  System.out.printf("%s Please try again..%n",

As soon as a Exception is thrown by line of code in the try/catch block, it skips the rest and jumps to the catch block.
